AstraZeneca PLC ADR share dividends

52%

Dividend payout ratio: 51.62% of net profits

Recently AstraZeneca PLC ADR has paid out, on average, around 51.62% 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), AstraZeneca PLC ADR shareholders could enjoy a 2.17% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AstraZeneca PLC ADR's case, that would currently equate to about $2.87 per share.

AstraZeneca PLC ADR'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.

AstraZeneca PLC ADR's most recent dividend payout was on 27 March 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 February 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have AstraZeneca PLC ADR's shares ever split?

AstraZeneca PLC ADR's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 July 2015. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AstraZeneca PLC ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AstraZeneca PLC ADR shares which in turn could have impacted AstraZeneca PLC ADR's share price.
