Restaurant Brands International share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 83.4% of net profits

Recently Restaurant Brands International has paid out, on average, around 83.4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Restaurant Brands International shareholders could enjoy a 3.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Restaurant Brands International's case, that would currently equate to about $2.1 per share.

Restaurant Brands International'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.

Restaurant Brands International's most recent dividend payout was on 4 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

QSR.US volatility(beta: 1.17)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 Restaurant Brands International's is 1.1672.
