John Bean Technologies Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 8.57% of net profits

Recently John Bean Technologies Corporation has paid out, on average, around 8.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.39% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), John Bean Technologies Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.39% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In John Bean Technologies Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

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

John Bean Technologies Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 4 September 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 August 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

John Bean Technologies Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, John Bean Technologies Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $83.6719 up to $125.7643. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

JBT.US volatility(beta: 1.41)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 John Bean Technologies Corporation's is 1.4073. This would suggest that John Bean Technologies Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
