Unilever PLC ADR share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 69.34% of net profits

Recently Unilever PLC ADR has paid out, on average, around 69.34% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Unilever PLC ADR shareholders could enjoy a 3.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Unilever PLC ADR's case, that would currently equate to about $1.664 per share.

Unilever PLC 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.

Unilever PLC ADR's most recent dividend payout was on 20 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Unilever PLC ADR's shares ever split?

Unilever PLC ADR's shares were split on a 9:5 basis on 24 May 2006. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 9 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Unilever PLC ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 44.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Unilever PLC ADR shares which in turn could have impacted Unilever PLC ADR's share price.

Unilever PLC ADR share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Unilever PLC ADR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $41.4046 up to $51.8737. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Unilever PLC ADR's is 0.1222. This would suggest that Unilever PLC ADR's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
