Compass Minerals International share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 3.53% of net profits

Recently Compass Minerals International has paid out, on average, around 3.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Compass Minerals International shareholders could enjoy a 2.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Compass Minerals International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

While Compass Minerals International's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Compass Minerals International is investing more in its future growth.

Compass Minerals International's most recent dividend payout was on 19 September 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 September 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Compass Minerals International share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Compass Minerals International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $26.64 up to $47.0449. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CMP.US volatility(beta: 1.57)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 Compass Minerals International's is 1.5709. This would suggest that Compass Minerals International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
