Recently Stanley Black-and-Decker has paid out, on average, around 23.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.68% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Stanley Black-and-Decker shareholders could enjoy a 1.68% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Stanley Black-and-Decker's case, that would currently equate to about $2.8 per share.

While Stanley Black-and-Decker's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Stanley Black-and-Decker is investing more in its future growth.

Stanley Black-and-Decker's most recent dividend payout was on 21 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 3 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Stanley Black-and-Decker stocks ever split?

Stanley Black-and-Decker stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 June 1996. 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 Stanley Black-and-Decker stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Stanley Black-and-Decker stocks which in turn could have impacted Stanley Black-and-Decker's stock price.

Stanley Black-and-Decker stock price volatility
