Great Elm Capital share dividends

60%

Dividend payout ratio: 59.82% of net profits

Recently Great Elm Capital has paid out, on average, around 59.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 20.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Great Elm Capital shareholders could enjoy a 20.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Great Elm Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $2.1 per share.

Great Elm Capital'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.

Great Elm Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 29 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Great Elm Capital's shares ever split?

Great Elm Capital's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 27 February 2022. So if you had owned 6 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 Great Elm Capital shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Great Elm Capital shares which in turn could have impacted Great Elm Capital's share price.

Great Elm Capital share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Great Elm Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.6117 up to $16.0123. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GECC.US volatility(beta: 1.54)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Great Elm Capital's is 1.5361. This would suggest that Great Elm Capital's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
