AMCON Distributing Company share dividends

17%

Dividend payout ratio: 16.67% of net profits

Recently AMCON Distributing Company has paid out, on average, around 16.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AMCON Distributing Company shareholders could enjoy a 0.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AMCON Distributing Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.

While AMCON Distributing Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that AMCON Distributing Company is investing more in its future growth.

AMCON Distributing Company's most recent dividend payout was on 29 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have AMCON Distributing Company's shares ever split?

AMCON Distributing Company's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 16 May 2004. So if you had owned 6 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AMCON Distributing Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for AMCON Distributing Company shares which in turn could have impacted AMCON Distributing Company's share price.

AMCON Distributing Company share price volatility
