Dividend payout ratio: 30.56% of net profits
Recently Best Buy Co has paid out, on average, around 30.56% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.26% of the current stock value.

In Best Buy Co's case, that would currently equate to about $3.52 per share.
While Best Buy Co's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Best Buy Co may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Have Best Buy Co's shares ever split?
Best Buy Co's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 4 August 2005. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Best Buy Co shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Best Buy Co shares which in turn could have impacted Best Buy Co's share price.
Best Buy Co share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Best Buy Co's shares have ranged in value from as little as $60.1312 up to $108.0865. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Best Buy Co's is 1.5103. This would suggest that Best Buy Co's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
