Dividend payout ratio: 101.47% of net profits
Recently Cathay Pacific Airways has paid out, on average, around 101.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 13.96% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cathay Pacific Airways shareholders could enjoy a 13.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cathay Pacific Airways's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.
Cathay Pacific Airways'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.
Cathay Pacific Airways's most recent dividend payout was on 20 August 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
