Mobile TeleSystems Public Joint Stock Company share dividends

87%

Dividend payout ratio: 87.47% of net profits

Recently Mobile TeleSystems Public Joint Stock Company has paid out, on average, around 87.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Mobile TeleSystems Public Joint Stock Company shareholders could enjoy a 9.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Mobile TeleSystems Public Joint Stock Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.676 per share.

Mobile TeleSystems Public Joint Stock 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.

Have Mobile TeleSystems Public Joint Stock Company's shares ever split?

Mobile TeleSystems Public Joint Stock Company's shares were split on a 5:2 basis on 2 May 2010. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Mobile TeleSystems Public Joint Stock Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 60% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Mobile TeleSystems Public Joint Stock Company shares which in turn could have impacted Mobile TeleSystems Public Joint Stock Company's share price.

This would suggest that Mobile TeleSystems Public Joint Stock Company'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).
