Western Midstream Partners share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 66.67% of net profits

Recently Western Midstream Partners has paid out, on average, around 66.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Western Midstream Partners shareholders could enjoy a 7.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Western Midstream Partners's case, that would currently equate to about $2 per share.

Western Midstream Partners'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.

Western Midstream Partners's most recent dividend payout was on 12 February 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Western Midstream Partners's shares ever split?

Western Midstream Partners's shares were split on a 10:9 basis on 25 November 2014. So if you had owned 9 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Western Midstream Partners shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 10% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Western Midstream Partners shares which in turn could have impacted Western Midstream Partners's share price.

Western Midstream Partners share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Western Midstream Partners's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.7918 up to $28.74. 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 Western Midstream Partners's is 2.7057. This would suggest that Western Midstream Partners's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
