Primo Water share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 44.07% of net profits

Recently Primo Water has paid out, on average, around 44.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Primo Water shareholders could enjoy a 2.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Primo Water's case, that would currently equate to about $0.25 per share.

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

Primo Water's most recent dividend payout was on 21 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Primo Water's shares ever split?

Primo Water's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 July 1993. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Primo Water shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Primo Water shares which in turn could have impacted Primo Water's share price.

Primo Water share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Primo Water's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.46 up to $19.8598. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PRMW.US volatility(beta: 1.28)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Primo Water's is 1.284. This would suggest that Primo Water's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
