91%

Dividend payout ratio: 91.3% of net profits

Recently Federal Realty Investment Trust has paid out, on average, around 91.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.95% of the current stock value.

Have Federal Realty Investment Trust's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Federal Realty Investment Trust shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Federal Realty Investment Trust shares which in turn could have impacted Federal Realty Investment Trust's share price.

Federal Realty Investment Trust share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Federal Realty Investment Trust's shares have ranged in value from as little as $85.5169 up to $123.9388. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FRT.US volatility(beta: 1.21)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

This would suggest that Federal Realty Investment Trust'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).
