Kaman Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 70.8% of net profits
Recently Kaman Corporation has paid out, on average, around 70.8% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.64% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kaman Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kaman Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.
Kaman Corporation'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.
Kaman Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 12 April 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Kaman Corporation's shares ever split?
Kaman Corporation's shares were split on a 8:5 basis on 1 November 1987. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 8 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kaman Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 37.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kaman Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Kaman Corporation's share price.
Kaman Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Kaman Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.523 up to $37.3042. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
