Natural Resource Partners share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 32.18% of net profits
Recently Natural Resource Partners has paid out, on average, around 32.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.9% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Natural Resource Partners shareholders could enjoy a 7.9% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Natural Resource Partners's case, that would currently equate to about $2.1 per share.
While Natural Resource Partners's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Natural Resource Partners may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Natural Resource Partners's most recent dividend payout was on 23 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Natural Resource Partners's shares ever split?
Natural Resource Partners's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 17 February 2016. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Natural Resource Partners shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Natural Resource Partners shares which in turn could have impacted Natural Resource Partners's share price.
