That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Natural Health Trends share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 7.19% of net profits

Recently Natural Health Trends has paid out, on average, around 7.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 11.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Natural Health Trends shareholders could enjoy a 11.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Natural Health Trends's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.

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

Natural Health Trends's most recent dividend payout was on 25 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Natural Health Trends's shares ever split?

Natural Health Trends's shares were split on a 1:100 basis on 18 March 2003. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Natural Health Trends shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Natural Health Trends shares which in turn could have impacted Natural Health Trends's share price.
