National Grid PLC ADR share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 82.76% of net profits

Recently National Grid PLC ADR has paid out, on average, around 82.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), National Grid PLC ADR shareholders could enjoy a 5.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In National Grid PLC ADR's case, that would currently equate to about $0.554 per share.

National Grid PLC ADR'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.

National Grid PLC ADR's most recent dividend payout was on 8 August 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have National Grid PLC ADR's shares ever split?

National Grid PLC ADR's shares were split on a 916:1000 basis on 21 May 2017. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 916 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your National Grid PLC ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.2% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for National Grid PLC ADR shares which in turn could have impacted National Grid PLC ADR's share price.

National Grid PLC ADR share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, National Grid PLC ADR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $44.8553 up to $71.9607. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
