Recently The Andersons has paid out, on average, around 38.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.63% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Andersons shareholders could enjoy a 2.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Andersons's case, that would currently equate to about $0.7 per share.
While The Andersons's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that The Andersons may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
