Mueller Water Products share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 39.32% of net profits

Recently Mueller Water Products has paid out, on average, around 39.32% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.25% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Mueller Water Products shareholders could enjoy a 2.25% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Mueller Water Products's case, that would currently equate to about $0.229 per share.

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

Mueller Water Products's most recent dividend payout was on 22 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
