Lamb Weston share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 23.18% of net profits

Recently Lamb Weston has paid out, on average, around 23.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Lamb Weston shareholders could enjoy a 1.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lamb Weston's case, that would currently equate to about $1.05 per share.

While Lamb Weston's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Lamb Weston is investing more in its future growth.

Lamb Weston's most recent dividend payout was on 31 August 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 August 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
