Magic Software Enterprises share dividends

49%

Dividend payout ratio: 48.65% of net profits

Recently Magic Software Enterprises has paid out, on average, around 48.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Magic Software Enterprises shareholders could enjoy a 3.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Magic Software Enterprises's case, that would currently equate to about $0.506 per share.

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

Magic Software Enterprises's most recent dividend payout was on 12 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Magic Software Enterprises's shares ever split?

Magic Software Enterprises's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 13 February 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Magic Software Enterprises shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Magic Software Enterprises shares which in turn could have impacted Magic Software Enterprises's share price.

Magic Software Enterprises share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Magic Software Enterprises's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.01 up to $19.9129. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MGIC.US volatility(beta: 1.17)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Magic Software Enterprises's is 1.1713. This would suggest that Magic Software Enterprises'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).
