Global Water Resources share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 69.89% of net profits

Recently Global Water Resources has paid out, on average, around 69.89% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.87% 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 1.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Global Water Resources's case, that would currently equate to about $0.291 per share.

Global Water Resources'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.

Global Water Resources's most recent dividend payout was on 30 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
