Is Atlantic American Corporation under- or over-valued?

Atlantic American Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 1.98% of net profits

Recently Atlantic American Corporation has paid out, on average, around 1.98% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Atlantic American Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Atlantic American Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.02 per share.

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

Atlantic American Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 26 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Atlantic American Corporation's shares ever split?

Atlantic American Corporation's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 3 November 1986. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Atlantic American Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Atlantic American Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Atlantic American Corporation's share price.
