Recently Cousins Properties Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 61.84% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cousins Properties Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 4.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cousins Properties Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $1.27 per share.

Cousins Properties Incorporated'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.

Cousins Properties Incorporated's most recent dividend payout was on 12 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Cousins Properties Incorporated's shares ever split?

Cousins Properties Incorporated's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 16 June 2019. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Cousins Properties Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cousins Properties Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Cousins Properties Incorporated's share price.

Cousins Properties Incorporated share price volatility
