Marten Transport share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 18.46% of net profits

Recently Marten Transport has paid out, on average, around 18.46% 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), Marten Transport shareholders could enjoy a 1.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Marten Transport's case, that would currently equate to about $0.24 per share.

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

Marten Transport's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Marten Transport's shares ever split?

Marten Transport's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 14 August 2020. So if you had owned 2 shares 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 Marten Transport shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Marten Transport shares which in turn could have impacted Marten Transport's share price.

Marten Transport share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Marten Transport's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.9669 up to $23.2219. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MRTN.US volatility(beta: 0.89)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
