Recently Magic Software Enterprises has paid out, on average, around 49.89% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.26% of the current stock value.

In Magic Software Enterprises's case, that would currently equate to about $0.444 per share.
While Magic Software Enterprises's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Magic Software Enterprises may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Have Magic Software Enterprises's shares ever split?
Magic Software Enterprises's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 13 February 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Magic Software Enterprises shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Magic Software Enterprises shares which in turn could have impacted Magic Software Enterprises's share price.
Magic Software Enterprises share price volatility
