Dividend payout ratio: 17.67% of net profits
Recently Global Ship Lease has paid out, on average, around 17.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.43% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Global Ship Lease shareholders could enjoy a 8.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Global Ship Lease's case, that would currently equate to about $1.5 per share.
While Global Ship Lease's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Global Ship Lease is investing more in its future growth.
Global Ship Lease's most recent dividend payout was on 2 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Global Ship Lease's shares ever split?
Global Ship Lease's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 25 March 2019. So if you had owned 8 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 Global Ship Lease shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Global Ship Lease shares which in turn could have impacted Global Ship Lease's share price.
Global Ship Lease share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Global Ship Lease's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.4743 up to $21.7597. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
