Dividend payout ratio: 666.67% of net profits
Recently Inspiration Healthcare Group has paid out, on average, around 666.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Inspiration Healthcare Group shareholders could enjoy a 0.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Inspiration Healthcare Group's case, that would currently equate to about N/Ap per share.
Inspiration Healthcare Group's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Inspiration Healthcare Group shares which in turn could have impacted Inspiration Healthcare Group's share price.
