Cincinnati Financial Corporation share dividends

42%

Dividend payout ratio: 41.65% of net profits

Recently Cincinnati Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 41.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cincinnati Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cincinnati Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.49 per share.

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

Cincinnati Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Cincinnati Financial Corporation's shares ever split?

Cincinnati Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 4 April 2005. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Cincinnati Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cincinnati Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Cincinnati Financial Corporation's share price.

Cincinnati Financial Corporation share price volatility
