Recently Estee Lauder Companies has paid out, on average, around 30.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.97% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Estee Lauder Companies shareholders could enjoy a 0.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Estee Lauder Companies's case, that would currently equate to about $2.26 per share.

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

Estee Lauder Companies's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Estee Lauder Companies's shares ever split?

Estee Lauder Companies's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 22 January 2012. 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 Estee Lauder Companies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Estee Lauder Companies shares which in turn could have impacted Estee Lauder Companies's share price.

Estee Lauder Companies share price volatility

This would suggest that Estee Lauder Companies'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).
