Cabot Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 29.17% of net profits

Recently Cabot Corporation has paid out, on average, around 29.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.39% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cabot Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.39% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cabot Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.51 per share.

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

Cabot Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 7 September 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 August 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Cabot Corporation's shares ever split?

Cabot Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 March 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 Cabot Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cabot Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Cabot Corporation's share price.

Cabot Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cabot Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $59.2245 up to $82.7772. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CBT.US volatility(beta: 1.29)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 Cabot Corporation's is 1.2932. This would suggest that Cabot Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
