This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), B&G Foods shareholders could enjoy a 5.66% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In B&G Foods's case, that would currently equate to about $1.9 per share.

B&G Foods'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.

B&G Foods's most recent dividend payout was on 31 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
