0%

Dividend payout ratio: 0.09% of net profits

Recently The Cooper Companies has paid out, on average, around 0.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.02% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Cooper Companies shareholders could enjoy a 0.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Cooper Companies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.008 per share.

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

The Cooper Companies's most recent dividend payout was on 10 August 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 July 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have The Cooper Companies's shares ever split?

The Cooper Companies's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 19 February 2024. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your The Cooper Companies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for The Cooper Companies shares which in turn could have impacted The Cooper Companies's share price.
