That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Healthpeak Properties shareholders could enjoy a 3.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Healthpeak Properties's case, that would currently equate to about $1.27 per share.

Healthpeak Properties'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.
