Dividend yield: 7.17% of stock value

Forward annual dividend yield: 7.17% of stock value

30.2%

Dividend payout ratio: 30.24% of net profits

Gem Diamonds has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 7.17% of its share value annually.

Gem Diamonds has paid out, on average, around 30.24% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.17% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), shareholders could enjoy a 7.17% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Gem Diamonds's case, that would currently equate to about 2.7p per share.

While Gem Diamonds'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 18 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
