Pan African Resources has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 508.64% of its share value annually.

Pan African Resources has paid out, on average, around 29% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 508.64% 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 508.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Pan African Resources's case, that would currently equate to about 1p per share.

While Pan African Resources'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.
