Dividend payout ratio: 44.3% of net profits

Central Asia Metals has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 10.14% of its share value annually.

Central Asia Metals has paid out, on average, around 44.3% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.14% of the current stock value.

In Central Asia Metals's case, that would currently equate to about 28.2p per share.

While Central Asia Metals's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that it may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
