Hanesbrands share dividends


Dividend yield: 3.81% of stock value


Forward annual dividend yield: 3.81% of stock value


Dividend payout ratio: 33.9% of net profits

Hanesbrands has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 3.81% of its share value annually.

Hanesbrands has paid out, on average, around 33.9% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.81% 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 3.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hanesbrands's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

While Hanesbrands'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.

Hanesbrands's most recent dividend payout was on 29 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Hanesbrands's shares ever split?

Hanesbrands's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 3 March 2015. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hanesbrands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hanesbrands shares which in turn could have impacted Hanesbrands's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Hanesbrands's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.3655 up to $22.28. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HBI.US volatility(beta: 1.51)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 Hanesbrands's is 1.5073. This would suggest that Hanesbrands's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
