Nutrien share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 33.39% of net profits
Recently Nutrien has paid out, on average, around 33.39% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Nutrien shareholders could enjoy a 3.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nutrien's case, that would currently equate to about C$2.02 per share.
While Nutrien's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Nutrien may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Nutrien's most recent dividend payout was on 12 October 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
