Change Healthcare share dividends

2%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.77% of net profits

Recently Change Healthcare has paid out, on average, around 1.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Change Healthcare shareholders could enjoy a 0% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Change Healthcare's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.

While Change Healthcare's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Change Healthcare is investing more in its future growth.
