Berry Petroleum share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 60.62% of net profits
Recently Berry Petroleum has paid out, on average, around 60.62% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.87% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Berry Petroleum shareholders could enjoy a 2.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Berry Petroleum's case, that would currently equate to about $0.37 per share.
Berry Petroleum'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.
Berry Petroleum's most recent dividend payout was on 24 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Berry Petroleum share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Berry Petroleum's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.3291 up to $11.8108. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Berry Petroleum's is 645.8829. This would suggest that Berry Petroleum's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
