In SIGA Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.
SIGA Technologies's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
SIGA Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 1 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
