LTC Properties share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 26.03% of net profits

Recently LTC Properties has paid out, on average, around 26.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), LTC Properties shareholders could enjoy a 7.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In LTC Properties's case, that would currently equate to about $2.28 per share.

While LTC Properties's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that LTC Properties may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

LTC Properties's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have LTC Properties's shares ever split?

LTC Properties's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 1 October 1998. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your LTC Properties shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for LTC Properties shares which in turn could have impacted LTC Properties's share price.

LTC Properties share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, LTC Properties's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.87 up to $43.4062. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LTC.US volatility(beta: 0.95)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while LTC Properties's is 0.9469. This would suggest that LTC Properties's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
