United Parcel Service share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 51.9% of net profits

Recently United Parcel Service has paid out, on average, around 51.9% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.78% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), United Parcel Service shareholders could enjoy a 3.78% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In United Parcel Service's case, that would currently equate to about $6.18 per share.

United Parcel Service'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.

United Parcel Service's most recent dividend payout was on 1 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

United Parcel Service share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, United Parcel Service's shares have ranged in value from as little as $150.6494 up to $203.6812. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UPS.US volatility(beta: 1.09)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 United Parcel Service's is 1.0869. This would suggest that United Parcel Service's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
