International Flavors-and-Fragrances share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 68.35% of net profits

Recently International Flavors-and-Fragrances has paid out, on average, around 68.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), International Flavors-and-Fragrances shareholders could enjoy a 4.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In International Flavors-and-Fragrances's case, that would currently equate to about $3.22 per share.

International Flavors-and-Fragrances'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.

International Flavors-and-Fragrances's most recent dividend payout was on 11 July 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have International Flavors-and-Fragrances's shares ever split?

International Flavors-and-Fragrances's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 20 January 1994. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your International Flavors-and-Fragrances shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for International Flavors-and-Fragrances shares which in turn could have impacted International Flavors-and-Fragrances's share price.

International Flavors-and-Fragrances share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, International Flavors-and-Fragrances's shares have ranged in value from as little as $76.11 up to $130.8236. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IFF.US volatility(beta: 1.1)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while International Flavors-and-Fragrances's is 1.0968. This would suggest that International Flavors-and-Fragrances's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
