That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Matthews International Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Matthews International Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.865 per share.

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

Have Matthews International Corporation's shares ever split?

Matthews International Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 September 2001. 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 Matthews International Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Matthews International Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Matthews International Corporation's share price.

Matthews International Corporation share price volatility
