That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.64% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), J-and-J Snack Foods shareholders could enjoy a 1.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In J-and-J Snack Foods's case, that would currently equate to about $2.416 per share.

J-and-J Snack Foods'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.

Have J-and-J Snack Foods's shares ever split?

J-and-J Snack Foods's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 5 January 2006. 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 J-and-J Snack Foods shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for J-and-J Snack Foods shares which in turn could have impacted J-and-J Snack Foods's share price.
