Mesa Laboratories share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 1.94% of net profits

Recently Mesa Laboratories has paid out, on average, around 1.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.54% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Mesa Laboratories shareholders could enjoy a 0.54% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Mesa Laboratories's case, that would currently equate to about $0.64 per share.

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

Mesa Laboratories's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 August 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Mesa Laboratories share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Mesa Laboratories's shares have ranged in value from as little as $113.7227 up to $205.6825. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MLAB.US volatility(beta: 0.72)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
