Global Water Resources share dividends

49%

Dividend payout ratio: 49.41% of net profits

Recently Global Water Resources has paid out, on average, around 49.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Global Water Resources shareholders could enjoy a 2.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Global Water Resources's case, that would currently equate to about $0.294 per share.

While Global Water Resources's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Global Water Resources may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Global Water Resources's most recent dividend payout was on 30 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
