Monolithic Power Systems share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 27.96% of net profits

Recently Monolithic Power Systems has paid out, on average, around 27.96% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.8% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Monolithic Power Systems shareholders could enjoy a 0.8% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Monolithic Power Systems's case, that would currently equate to about $3.5 per share.

While Monolithic Power Systems's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Monolithic Power Systems may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Monolithic Power Systems's most recent dividend payout was on 13 July 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Monolithic Power Systems share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Monolithic Power Systems's shares have ranged in value from as little as $299.8421 up to $595.98. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MPWR.US volatility(beta: 1.14)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Monolithic Power Systems's is 1.138. This would suggest that Monolithic Power Systems'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).
