Genco Shipping-and-Trading share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 79% of net profits

Recently Genco Shipping-and-Trading has paid out, on average, around 79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 11.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Genco Shipping-and-Trading shareholders could enjoy a 11.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Genco Shipping-and-Trading's case, that would currently equate to about $1.58 per share.

Genco Shipping-and-Trading'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.

Genco Shipping-and-Trading's most recent dividend payout was on 22 August 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 August 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Genco Shipping-and-Trading's shares ever split?

Genco Shipping-and-Trading's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 7 July 2016. So if you had owned 10 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 Genco Shipping-and-Trading shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Genco Shipping-and-Trading shares which in turn could have impacted Genco Shipping-and-Trading's share price.

Genco Shipping-and-Trading share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Genco Shipping-and-Trading's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.8071 up to $18.9244. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GNK.US volatility(beta: 1.11)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Genco Shipping-and-Trading's is 1.1058. This would suggest that Genco Shipping-and-Trading'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).
