LyondellBasell Industries share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 59.51% of net profits

Recently LyondellBasell Industries has paid out, on average, around 59.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), LyondellBasell Industries shareholders could enjoy a 5.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In LyondellBasell Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $4.82 per share.

LyondellBasell Industries'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.

LyondellBasell Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 4 September 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 August 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

LyondellBasell Industries share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, LyondellBasell Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $67.9154 up to $102.05. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LYB.US volatility(beta: 1.23)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 LyondellBasell Industries's is 1.2286. This would suggest that LyondellBasell Industries'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).
