Greenbrier Companies share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 41.73% of net profits

Recently Greenbrier Companies has paid out, on average, around 41.73% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Greenbrier Companies shareholders could enjoy a 3.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Greenbrier Companies's case, that would currently equate to about $1.11 per share.

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

Greenbrier Companies's most recent dividend payout was on 7 August 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 July 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Greenbrier Companies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Greenbrier Companies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.0208 up to $48.21. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GBX.US volatility(beta: 1.64)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 Greenbrier Companies's is 1.6428. This would suggest that Greenbrier Companies's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
