Telefonica SA ADR share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 106.18% of net profits

Recently Telefonica SA ADR has paid out, on average, around 106.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.63% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Telefonica SA ADR shareholders could enjoy a 7.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Telefonica SA ADR's case, that would currently equate to about $0.3 per share.

Telefonica SA ADR'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.

Telefonica SA ADR's most recent dividend payout was on 5 July 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Telefonica SA ADR's shares ever split?

Telefonica SA ADR's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 21 January 2011. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Telefonica SA ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Telefonica SA ADR shares which in turn could have impacted Telefonica SA ADR's share price.

Telefonica SA ADR share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Telefonica SA ADR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.8443 up to $4.3511. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TEF.US volatility(beta: 0.65)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
