Canadian Pacific Railway share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 14.3% of net profits

Recently Canadian Pacific Railway has paid out, on average, around 14.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.73% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Canadian Pacific Railway shareholders could enjoy a 0.73% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Canadian Pacific Railway's case, that would currently equate to about $0.76 per share.

While Canadian Pacific Railway's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Canadian Pacific Railway is investing more in its future growth.

Canadian Pacific Railway's most recent dividend payout was on 31 July 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Canadian Pacific Railway's shares ever split?

Canadian Pacific Railway's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 14 May 2021. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Canadian Pacific Railway shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Canadian Pacific Railway shares which in turn could have impacted Canadian Pacific Railway's share price.

Canadian Pacific Railway share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Canadian Pacific Railway's shares have ranged in value from as little as $64.9269 up to $83.45. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CP.US volatility(beta: 0.83)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 Canadian Pacific Railway's is 0.8329. This would suggest that Canadian Pacific Railway's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
