Global Self Storage share dividends

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Global Self Storage shareholders could enjoy a 4.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Global Self Storage's case, that would currently equate to about $0.26 per share.

Global Self Storage's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Global Self Storage's most recent dividend payout was on 29 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
