That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Recently Dine Brands Global has paid out, on average, around 7.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dine Brands Global shareholders could enjoy a 2.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dine Brands Global's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.

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

Dine Brands Global's most recent dividend payout was on 6 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Dine Brands Global's shares ever split?

Dine Brands Global's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 May 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 Dine Brands Global shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dine Brands Global shares which in turn could have impacted Dine Brands Global's share price.
