Dividend payout ratio: 17.95% of net profits
Recently Perspecta has paid out, on average, around 17.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.96% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Perspecta shareholders could enjoy a 0.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Perspecta's case, that would currently equate to about $0.27 per share.
While Perspecta's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Perspecta is investing more in its future growth.
Perspecta's most recent dividend payout was on 15 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Perspecta's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0 up to $0. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Perspecta's is 1.4001. This would suggest that Perspecta's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
