Canadian Tire share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 45.28% of net profits

Recently Canadian Tire has paid out, on average, around 45.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Canadian Tire shareholders could enjoy a 2.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Canadian Tire's case, that would currently equate to about C$6.7 per share.

While Canadian Tire's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Canadian Tire may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Canadian Tire's most recent dividend payout was on 1 September 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 July 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Canadian Tire share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Canadian Tire's shares have ranged in value from as little as C$240.3576 up to C$395.7272. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CTC.TO volatility(beta: 1.25)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 Canadian Tire's is 1.2506. This would suggest that Canadian Tire's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
