Birchcliff Energy share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 52.54% of net profits

Recently Birchcliff Energy has paid out, on average, around 52.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Birchcliff Energy shareholders could enjoy a 9.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Birchcliff Energy's case, that would currently equate to about C$0.44 per share.

Birchcliff Energy'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.

Birchcliff Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 28 September 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 September 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Birchcliff Energy's shares ever split?

Birchcliff Energy's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 16 December 1992. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Birchcliff Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Birchcliff Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Birchcliff Energy's share price.
