CTS Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 7.48% of net profits

Recently CTS Corporation has paid out, on average, around 7.48% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CTS Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CTS Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.16 per share.

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

CTS Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 22 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have CTS Corporation's shares ever split?

CTS Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 13 August 1999. 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 CTS Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CTS Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted CTS Corporation's share price.

CTS Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CTS Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.6514 up to $40.03. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CTS.US volatility(beta: 0.67)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while CTS Corporation's is 0.6701. This would suggest that CTS Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
