Dividend payout ratio: 5086.21% of net profits
Recently Morgan Sindall Group has paid out, on average, around 5086.21% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.7% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Morgan Sindall Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.7% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Morgan Sindall Group's case, that would currently equate to about 0.42p per share.
Morgan Sindall 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 12 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Morgan Sindall Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 10 July 1987. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Morgan Sindall Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Morgan Sindall Group shares which in turn could have impacted Morgan Sindall Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Morgan Sindall Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as 974.9034p up to 1889.7401p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
