Ituran Location and Control share dividends

31%

Dividend payout ratio: 31.28% of net profits

Recently Ituran Location and Control has paid out, on average, around 31.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ituran Location and Control shareholders could enjoy a 2.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ituran Location and Control's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.

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

Ituran Location and Control's most recent dividend payout was on 13 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Ituran Location and Control's shares ever split?

Ituran Location and Control's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 21 September 2005. 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 Ituran Location and Control shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ituran Location and Control shares which in turn could have impacted Ituran Location and Control's share price.

Ituran Location and Control share price volatility

ITRN.US volatility(beta: 1.3)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 Ituran Location and Control's is 1.2963. This would suggest that Ituran Location and Control's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
