McGrath RentCorp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 46.15% of net profits
Recently McGrath RentCorp has paid out, on average, around 46.15% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), McGrath RentCorp shareholders could enjoy a 2.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In McGrath RentCorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.725 per share.
While McGrath RentCorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that McGrath RentCorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
McGrath RentCorp's most recent dividend payout was on 30 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your McGrath RentCorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for McGrath RentCorp shares which in turn could have impacted McGrath RentCorp's share price.
