Johnson Controls International share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 42.13% of net profits

Recently Johnson Controls International has paid out, on average, around 42.13% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Johnson Controls International shareholders could enjoy a 1.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Johnson Controls International's case, that would currently equate to about $1.06 per share.

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

Johnson Controls International's most recent dividend payout was on 14 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Johnson Controls International's shares ever split?

Johnson Controls International's shares were split on a 955:1000 basis on 5 September 2016. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 955 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Johnson Controls International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.7% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Johnson Controls International shares which in turn could have impacted Johnson Controls International's share price.

Johnson Controls International share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Johnson Controls International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $40.1994 up to $76.55. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

JCI.US volatility(beta: 1.14)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 Johnson Controls International's is 1.1439. This would suggest that Johnson Controls International'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).
