iA Financial Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 26.3% of net profits
Recently iA Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 26.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), iA Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In iA Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about C$1.94 per share.
While iA Financial Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that iA Financial Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
iA Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have iA Financial Corporation's shares ever split?
iA Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 May 2005. 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 iA Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for iA Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted iA Financial Corporation's share price.
iA Financial Corporation share price volatility
