CES Energy Solutions share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 21.33% of net profits

Recently CES Energy Solutions has paid out, on average, around 21.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.78% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CES Energy Solutions shareholders could enjoy a 2.78% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CES Energy Solutions's case, that would currently equate to about C$0.064 per share.

While CES Energy Solutions's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that CES Energy Solutions is investing more in its future growth.

CES Energy Solutions's most recent dividend payout was on 14 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have CES Energy Solutions's shares ever split?

CES Energy Solutions's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 24 July 2014. So if you had owned 1 share 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 CES Energy Solutions shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CES Energy Solutions shares which in turn could have impacted CES Energy Solutions's share price.

CES Energy Solutions share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CES Energy Solutions's shares have ranged in value from as little as C$1.6717 up to C$3.27. 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 (TO average) beta is 1, while CES Energy Solutions's is 2.6489. This would suggest that CES Energy Solutions's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
