Dividend payout ratio: 8.25% of net profits
Recently Bloomsbury Publishing has paid out, on average, around 8.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bloomsbury Publishing shareholders could enjoy a 0.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bloomsbury Publishing's case, that would currently equate to about 0.03p per share.
While Bloomsbury Publishing's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Bloomsbury Publishing is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Bloomsbury Publishing's shares were split on a 32:31 basis on 30 July 2020. So if you had owned 31 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 32 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Bloomsbury Publishing shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bloomsbury Publishing shares which in turn could have impacted Bloomsbury Publishing's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Bloomsbury Publishing's shares have ranged in value from as little as 153.9128p up to 310p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (LSE average) beta is 1, while Bloomsbury Publishing's is 0.3396. This would suggest that Bloomsbury Publishing's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
