Cineworld Group share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 134.73% of net profits

Recently Cineworld Group has paid out, on average, around 134.73% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 43.8% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cineworld Group shareholders could enjoy a 43.8% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cineworld Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.22 per share.

Cineworld Group'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.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 April 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Cineworld Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cineworld Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.245 up to $2.98. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CNNWF.US volatility(beta: 2.11)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (PINK average) beta is 1, while Cineworld Group's is 2.1139. This would suggest that Cineworld Group's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
