This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Levi Strauss-and-Co shareholders could enjoy a 1.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Levi Strauss-and-Co's case, that would currently equate to about $0.18 per share.

While Levi Strauss-and-Co's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Levi Strauss-and-Co is investing more in its future growth.
