HealthStream share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 6.41% of net profits

Recently HealthStream has paid out, on average, around 6.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HealthStream shareholders could enjoy a 0.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HealthStream's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.

While HealthStream's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that HealthStream is investing more in its future growth.

HealthStream's most recent dividend payout was on 27 April 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 April 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

HealthStream share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, HealthStream's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.81 up to $26.84. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while HealthStream's is 0.4981. This would suggest that HealthStream's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
