Dividend payout ratio: 21.1% of net profits
Recently Castleton Technology has paid out, on average, around 21.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Castleton Technology shareholders could enjoy a 2.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Castleton Technology's case, that would currently equate to about £0.02 per share.
While Castleton Technology's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Castleton Technology is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 August 2019 (the "ex-dividend date").
Castleton Technology's shares were split on a 8:160 basis on 23 October 2015. So if you had owned 160 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 8 shares.

However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Castleton Technology shares which in turn could have impacted Castleton Technology's share price.
