ConAgra Foods share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 49.9% of net profits
Recently ConAgra Foods has paid out, on average, around 49.9% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ConAgra Foods shareholders could enjoy a 3.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ConAgra Foods's case, that would currently equate to about $1.285 per share.
While ConAgra Foods's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that ConAgra Foods may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
ConAgra Foods's most recent dividend payout was on 1 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have ConAgra Foods's shares ever split?
ConAgra Foods's shares were split on a 1285:1000 basis on 9 November 2016. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1285 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ConAgra Foods shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 22.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ConAgra Foods shares which in turn could have impacted ConAgra Foods's share price.
ConAgra Foods share price volatility
