Vale SA ADR share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 30.86% of net profits

Recently Vale SA ADR has paid out, on average, around 30.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.01% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Vale SA ADR shareholders could enjoy a 5.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vale SA ADR's case, that would currently equate to about $0.69 per share.

While Vale SA ADR's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Vale SA ADR may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Vale SA ADR's most recent dividend payout was on 29 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Vale SA ADR's shares ever split?

Vale SA ADR's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 13 September 2007. 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 Vale SA ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Vale SA ADR shares which in turn could have impacted Vale SA ADR's share price.

Vale SA ADR share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Vale SA ADR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.3069 up to $18.8845. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
