Argo Group International share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 97.64% of net profits

Recently Argo Group International has paid out, on average, around 97.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Argo Group International shareholders could enjoy a 5.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Argo Group International's case, that would currently equate to about $1.24 per share.

Argo Group International's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Argo Group International's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Argo Group International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 13% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Argo Group International shares which in turn could have impacted Argo Group International's share price.
