Consolidated Edison share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 69.89% of net profits

Recently Consolidated Edison has paid out, on average, around 69.89% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Consolidated Edison shareholders could enjoy a 3.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Consolidated Edison's case, that would currently equate to about $3.16 per share.

Consolidated Edison'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.

Consolidated Edison's most recent dividend payout was on 14 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Consolidated Edison's shares ever split?

Consolidated Edison's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 July 1989. 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 Consolidated Edison shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Consolidated Edison shares which in turn could have impacted Consolidated Edison's share price.

Consolidated Edison share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Consolidated Edison's shares have ranged in value from as little as $76.7337 up to $100.4218. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Consolidated Edison's is 0.3469. This would suggest that Consolidated Edison's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
