FirstService share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 18.67% of net profits

Recently FirstService has paid out, on average, around 18.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), FirstService shareholders could enjoy a 0.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FirstService's case, that would currently equate to about $0.855 per share.

While FirstService's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that FirstService is investing more in its future growth.

FirstService's most recent dividend payout was on 5 October 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 September 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

FirstService share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, FirstService's shares have ranged in value from as little as $111.7092 up to $163.95. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FSV.US volatility(beta: 1)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 FirstService's is 0.9976. This would suggest that FirstService's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
