Recently Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional has paid out, on average, around 9.38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional shareholders could enjoy a 8.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's case, that would currently equate to about $1.921 per share.

While Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional is investing more in its future growth.

Have Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's shares ever split?

Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 April 2010. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional shares which in turn could have impacted Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's share price.

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's is 1.4456. This would suggest that Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
