Atalaya Mining share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 71.23% of net profits

Recently Atalaya Mining has paid out, on average, around 71.23% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Atalaya Mining shareholders could enjoy a 6.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Atalaya Mining's case, that would currently equate to about C$0.345 per share.

Atalaya Mining'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.

Atalaya Mining's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Atalaya Mining's shares ever split?

Atalaya Mining's shares were split on a 1:30 basis on 20 October 2015. So if you had owned 30 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 Atalaya Mining shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Atalaya Mining shares which in turn could have impacted Atalaya Mining's share price.

Atalaya Mining share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Atalaya Mining's shares have ranged in value from as little as C$3.48 up to C$7.2. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AYM.TO volatility(beta: 1.57)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (TO average) beta is 1, while Atalaya Mining's is 1.5718. This would suggest that Atalaya Mining's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
