Artesian Resources Corporation share dividends

59%

Recently Artesian Resources Corporation has paid out, on average, around 59.06% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.17% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Artesian Resources Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.17% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Artesian Resources Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.057 per share.

Artesian Resources Corporation'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.

Artesian Resources Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 22 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Artesian Resources Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Artesian Resources Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Artesian Resources Corporation's share price.
