Enghouse Systems share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 37.5% of net profits

Recently Enghouse Systems has paid out, on average, around 37.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Enghouse Systems shareholders could enjoy a 1.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Enghouse Systems's case, that would currently equate to about C$0.615 per share.

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

Enghouse Systems's most recent dividend payout was on 29 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Enghouse Systems's shares ever split?

Enghouse Systems's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 January 2019. 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 Enghouse Systems shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Enghouse Systems shares which in turn could have impacted Enghouse Systems's share price.

Enghouse Systems share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Enghouse Systems's shares have ranged in value from as little as C$50.6143 up to C$67.8003. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ENGH.TO volatility(beta: 0.84)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (TO average) beta is 1, while Enghouse Systems's is 0.8414. This would suggest that Enghouse Systems's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
