Evolution Petroleum Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 40.72% of net profits

Recently Evolution Petroleum Corporation has paid out, on average, around 40.72% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.9% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Evolution Petroleum Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 6.9% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Evolution Petroleum Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.35 per share.

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

Evolution Petroleum Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 29 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Evolution Petroleum Corporation's shares ever split?

Evolution Petroleum Corporation's shares were split on a 1:40 basis on 4 February 2004. So if you had owned 40 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Evolution Petroleum Corporation's share price.

Evolution Petroleum Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Evolution Petroleum Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.2268 up to $8.48. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EPM.US volatility(beta: 1.2)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while Evolution Petroleum Corporation's is 1.2014. This would suggest that Evolution Petroleum Corporation'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).
