Learn how to easily invest in Dole stock.

Fruit and vegetable giant Dole is expected to go public later today and commence trading on the New York Stock Exchange Friday under the ticker symbol "DOLE," according to a Form F-1 filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

The company slashed its price range on the offering to $16 to $17 per share from $20 to $23 per share, a move that slices its targeted valuation by more than $400 million.

The IPO news comes months after Dole Food Company merged with Ireland's Total Produce to form the world's largest fruit and vegetable supply business.

Dole share dividends

35%

Dividend payout ratio: 34.78% of net profits

Recently Dole has paid out, on average, around 34.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dole shareholders could enjoy a 4.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dole's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.

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

Dole's most recent dividend payout was on 7 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Dole's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.
