Wheaton Precious Metals share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 60% of net profits

Recently Wheaton Precious Metals has paid out, on average, around 60% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.25% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Wheaton Precious Metals shareholders could enjoy a 1.25% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Wheaton Precious Metals's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

Wheaton Precious Metals'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.

Wheaton Precious Metals's most recent dividend payout was on 2 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Wheaton Precious Metals's shares ever split?

Wheaton Precious Metals's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 21 December 2004. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Wheaton Precious Metals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Wheaton Precious Metals shares which in turn could have impacted Wheaton Precious Metals's share price.

Wheaton Precious Metals share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Wheaton Precious Metals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.3228 up to $52.5993. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
