Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 2.77% of net profits

Recently Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd has paid out, on average, around 2.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shareholders could enjoy a 3.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's case, that would currently equate to about $4.306 per share.

While Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd is investing more in its future growth.

Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's most recent dividend payout was on 4 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's shares ever split?

Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's shares were split on a 4:5 basis on 6 January 2011. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares which in turn could have impacted Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's share price.

Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's shares have ranged in value from as little as $37.0706 up to $42.8. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's is -0.046. This would suggest that Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd has bucked the trend.

How has Coronavirus impacted Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's stock price?

Since the stock market crash in March caused by coronavirus, Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's stock price has had significant positive movement.

Its last market close was $42.72, which is 15.85% up on its pre-crash value of $35.95 and 23.97% up on the lowest point reached during the March crash when the stocks fell as low as $34.46.

If you had bought $1,000 worth of Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd stocks at the start of February 2020, those stocks would have been worth $975.03 at the bottom of the March crash, and if you held on to them, then as of the last market close they'd be worth $1,196.59.
