Saul Centers share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 112.67% of net profits

Recently Saul Centers has paid out, on average, around 112.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Saul Centers shareholders could enjoy a 6.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Saul Centers's case, that would currently equate to about $2.28 per share.

Saul Centers'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.

Saul Centers's most recent dividend payout was on 30 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 October 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

This would suggest that Saul Centers'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).
