Diana Shipping share dividends

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.43% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Diana Shipping shareholders could enjoy a 2.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Diana Shipping's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.
While Diana Shipping's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Diana Shipping is investing more in its future growth.
