Edison International share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 61.02% of net profits
Recently Edison International has paid out, on average, around 61.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Edison International shareholders could enjoy a 4.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Edison International's case, that would currently equate to about $2.8 per share.
Edison International'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.

Edison International's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 June 1993. 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 Edison International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Edison International shares which in turn could have impacted Edison International's share price.
Edison International share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Edison International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $53.8324 up to $70.9277. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
