The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company stock dividends

Recently The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company has paid out, on average, around 75.63% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company's case, that would currently equate to about $2.44 per share.

The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company'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.

The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 10 November 2005. 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 The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company stocks which in turn could have impacted The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company's stock price.
