Elbit Systems share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 41.58% of net profits

Recently Elbit Systems has paid out, on average, around 41.58% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Elbit Systems shareholders could enjoy a 1.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Elbit Systems's case, that would currently equate to about $2 per share.

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

Elbit Systems's most recent dividend payout was on 1 May 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 April 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Elbit Systems share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Elbit Systems's shares have ranged in value from as little as $161.5557 up to $242.7747. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Elbit Systems's is -0.0668. This would suggest that Elbit Systems's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Elbit Systems has bucked the trend.
