Dorchester Minerals share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 98.82% of net profits

Recently Dorchester Minerals has paid out, on average, around 98.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.75% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dorchester Minerals shareholders could enjoy a 10.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dorchester Minerals's case, that would currently equate to about $2.87 per share.

Dorchester Minerals'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.

Dorchester Minerals's most recent dividend payout was on 11 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 July 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Dorchester Minerals's shares ever split?

Dorchester Minerals's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 August 1989. 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 Dorchester Minerals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dorchester Minerals shares which in turn could have impacted Dorchester Minerals's share price.

DMLP.US volatility(beta: 1.19)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Dorchester Minerals's is 1.191. This would suggest that Dorchester Minerals's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
