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.

Diana Shipping's most recent dividend payout was on 9 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
