The Mosaic Company share dividends

Recently The Mosaic Company has paid out, on average, around 6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.28% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Mosaic Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.28% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Mosaic Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.225 per share.

While The Mosaic Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that The Mosaic Company is investing more in its future growth.

Have The Mosaic Company's shares ever split?

The Mosaic Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 November 1995. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your The Mosaic Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for The Mosaic Company shares which in turn could have impacted The Mosaic Company's share price.

The Mosaic Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, The Mosaic Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.0041 up to $79.0902. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MOS.US volatility(beta: 1.57)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 The Mosaic Company's is 1.5735. This would suggest that The Mosaic Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
