50%

Dividend payout ratio: 49.93% of net profits

Recently Hubbell Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 49.93% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hubbell Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 2.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hubbell Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $3.71 per share.

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

Have Hubbell Incorporated's shares ever split?

Hubbell Incorporated's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 11 August 1996. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hubbell Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hubbell Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Hubbell Incorporated's share price.

Hubbell Incorporated share price volatility
