That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Star Group L-P shareholders could enjoy a 5.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Star Group L-P's case, that would currently equate to about $0.53 per share.
Star Group L-P'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.
Star Group L-P's most recent dividend payout was on 1 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Star Group L-P's shares were split on a 20:1 basis on 22 December 2013. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 20 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Star Group L-P shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 95% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Star Group L-P shares which in turn could have impacted Star Group L-P's share price.
