Avery Dennison Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 29.36% of net profits

Recently Avery Dennison Corporation has paid out, on average, around 29.36% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Avery Dennison Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Avery Dennison Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.6 per share.

While Avery Dennison Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Avery Dennison Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Avery Dennison Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Avery Dennison Corporation's shares ever split?

Avery Dennison Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 22 December 1996. 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 Avery Dennison Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Avery Dennison Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Avery Dennison Corporation's share price.

Avery Dennison Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Avery Dennison Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $145.5391 up to $228.5168. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AVY.US volatility(beta: 1.01)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Avery Dennison Corporation's is 1.0076. This would suggest that Avery Dennison Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
