Utz Brands share dividends

Recently Utz Brands has paid out, on average, around 40.36% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.37% of the current stock value.

In Utz Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $0.222 per share.
While Utz Brands's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Utz Brands may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Utz Brands's most recent dividend payout was on 4 May 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 April 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
