That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 15.96% 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 15.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Genco Shipping-and-Trading's case, that would currently equate to about $2.11 per share.

While Genco Shipping-and-Trading's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Genco Shipping-and-Trading may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

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

Genco Shipping-and-Trading's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 8 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.

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 1.0216. 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).
