20%

Dividend payout ratio: 20% of net profits

Recently World Fuel Services Corporation has paid out, on average, around 20% 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), World Fuel Services Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.28% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In World Fuel Services Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

While World Fuel Services Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that World Fuel Services Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Have World Fuel Services Corporation's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your World Fuel Services Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for World Fuel Services Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted World Fuel Services Corporation's share price.
