Dividend payout ratio: 202.78% of net profits
Recently Kingstone Companies has paid out, on average, around 202.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kingstone Companies shareholders could enjoy a 1.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kingstone Companies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.182 per share.
Kingstone Companies'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.
Kingstone Companies's most recent dividend payout was on 14 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Kingstone Companies's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 25 August 2004. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kingstone Companies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kingstone Companies shares which in turn could have impacted Kingstone Companies's share price.
