Quanta Services share dividends

5%

Dividend payout ratio: 4.95% of net profits

Recently Quanta Services has paid out, on average, around 4.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Quanta Services shareholders could enjoy a 0.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Quanta Services's case, that would currently equate to about $0.26 per share.

While Quanta Services's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Quanta Services is investing more in its future growth.

Quanta Services's most recent dividend payout was on 14 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Quanta Services's shares ever split?

Quanta Services's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 9 April 2000. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Quanta Services shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Quanta Services shares which in turn could have impacted Quanta Services's share price.

Quanta Services share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Quanta Services's shares have ranged in value from as little as $84.2593 up to $140.04. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PWR.US volatility(beta: 1.19)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 Quanta Services's is 1.1919. This would suggest that Quanta Services'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).
