Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 15.37% of net profits

Recently Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum has paid out, on average, around 15.37% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum shareholders could enjoy a 1.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's case, that would currently equate to about $3.75 per share.

While Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum is investing more in its future growth.

Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's most recent dividend payout was on 31 August 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 August 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's shares ever split?

Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 19 July 2006. 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 Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum shares which in turn could have impacted Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's share price.

Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's shares have ranged in value from as little as $165.5742 up to $294.9271. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RS.US volatility(beta: 0.92)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 Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's is 0.9232. This would suggest that Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
