Advance Auto Parts share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 144.93% of net profits

Recently Advance Auto Parts has paid out, on average, around 144.93% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.7% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Advance Auto Parts shareholders could enjoy a 1.7% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Advance Auto Parts's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.

Advance Auto Parts'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.

Advance Auto Parts's most recent dividend payout was on 25 July 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 July 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Advance Auto Parts's shares ever split?

Advance Auto Parts's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 25 September 2005. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Advance Auto Parts shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Advance Auto Parts shares which in turn could have impacted Advance Auto Parts's share price.

Advance Auto Parts share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Advance Auto Parts's shares have ranged in value from as little as $47.3819 up to $88.2759. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AAP.US volatility(beta: 1.23)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Advance Auto Parts's is 1.226. This would suggest that Advance Auto Parts's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
