Whitestone REIT share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 47.06% of net profits

Recently Whitestone REIT has paid out, on average, around 47.06% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Whitestone REIT shareholders could enjoy a 5.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Whitestone REIT's case, that would currently equate to about $0.443 per share.

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

Whitestone REIT's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 October 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Whitestone REIT share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Whitestone REIT's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.51 up to $13.4179. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WSR.US volatility(beta: 1.21)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 Whitestone REIT's is 1.205. This would suggest that Whitestone REIT'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).
