Marvell Technology share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 15.38% of net profits

Recently Marvell Technology has paid out, on average, around 15.38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.43% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Marvell Technology shareholders could enjoy a 0.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Marvell Technology's case, that would currently equate to about $0.24 per share.

While Marvell Technology's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Marvell Technology is investing more in its future growth.

Marvell Technology's most recent dividend payout was on 27 April 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 April 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Marvell Technology's shares ever split?

Marvell Technology's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 July 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 Marvell Technology shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Marvell Technology shares which in turn could have impacted Marvell Technology's share price.

Marvell Technology share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Marvell Technology's shares have ranged in value from as little as $45.7442 up to $93.6985. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MRVL.US volatility(beta: 1.19)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Marvell Technology's is 1.1922. This would suggest that Marvell Technology's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
