CMC Materials share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 24.6% of net profits
Recently CMC Materials has paid out, on average, around 24.6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.05% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CMC Materials shareholders could enjoy a 1.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CMC Materials's case, that would currently equate to about $1.84 per share.
While CMC Materials's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that CMC Materials is investing more in its future growth.
CMC Materials's most recent dividend payout was on 21 April 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 March 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Over the last 12 months, CMC Materials's shares have ranged in value from as little as $118.1504 up to $196.0273. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while CMC Materials's is 1.1902. This would suggest that CMC Materials's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
