Middlesex Water Company share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 60.47% of net profits

Recently Middlesex Water Company has paid out, on average, around 60.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Middlesex Water Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Middlesex Water Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.205 per share.

Middlesex Water Company'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.

Middlesex Water Company's most recent dividend payout was on 1 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Middlesex Water Company's shares ever split?

Middlesex Water Company's shares were split on a 4:3 basis on 17 November 2003. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Middlesex Water Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Middlesex Water Company shares which in turn could have impacted Middlesex Water Company's share price.

Middlesex Water Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Middlesex Water Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $66.2304 up to $95.0998. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MSEX.US volatility(beta: 0.75)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
