Sculptor Capital Management share dividends

33%

Dividend payout ratio: 32.64% of net profits

Recently Sculptor Capital Management has paid out, on average, around 32.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 13.2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sculptor Capital Management shareholders could enjoy a 13.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sculptor Capital Management's case, that would currently equate to about $0.95 per share.

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

Sculptor Capital Management's most recent dividend payout was on 3 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Sculptor Capital Management's shares ever split?

Sculptor Capital Management's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 3 January 2019. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sculptor Capital Management shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sculptor Capital Management shares which in turn could have impacted Sculptor Capital Management's share price.
