W P Carey share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 142.21% of net profits

Recently W P Carey has paid out, on average, around 142.21% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), W P Carey shareholders could enjoy a 5.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In W P Carey's case, that would currently equate to about $4.242 per share.

W P Carey'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.

W P Carey's most recent dividend payout was on 13 April 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

W P Carey share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, W P Carey's shares have ranged in value from as little as $66.8466 up to $87.13. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WPC.US volatility(beta: 0.8)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 W P Carey's is 0.8043. This would suggest that W P Carey's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
