Eversource Energy share dividends

58%

Dividend payout ratio: 57.68% of net profits

Recently Eversource Energy has paid out, on average, around 57.68% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Eversource Energy shareholders could enjoy a 4.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Eversource Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $2.74 per share.

Eversource Energy'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.

Eversource Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 27 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 May 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Eversource Energy's shares ever split?

Eversource Energy's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 29 April 2013. 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 Eversource Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Eversource Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Eversource Energy's share price.

Eversource Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Eversource Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $50.2501 up to $71.4889. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ES.US volatility(beta: 0.6)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 Eversource Energy's is 0.604. This would suggest that Eversource Energy's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
