DICKS Sporting Goods share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 42% of net profits

Recently DICKS Sporting Goods has paid out, on average, around 42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), DICKS Sporting Goods shareholders could enjoy a 1.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In DICKS Sporting Goods's case, that would currently equate to about $1.35 per share.

While DICKS Sporting Goods's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that DICKS Sporting Goods may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

DICKS Sporting Goods's most recent dividend payout was on 23 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have DICKS Sporting Goods's shares ever split?

DICKS Sporting Goods's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 October 2007. 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 DICKS Sporting Goods shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for DICKS Sporting Goods shares which in turn could have impacted DICKS Sporting Goods's share price.

DICKS Sporting Goods share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, DICKS Sporting Goods's shares have ranged in value from as little as $47.9516 up to $140.8723. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DKS.US volatility(beta: 1.76)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while DICKS Sporting Goods's is 1.7609. This would suggest that DICKS Sporting Goods's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
