Dividend payout ratio: 6.69% of net profits
Recently Pan African Resources has paid out, on average, around 6.69% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.91% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Pan African Resources shareholders could enjoy a 2.91% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Pan African Resources's case, that would currently equate to about 0.01p per share.

Pan African Resources's shares were split on a 1000:1049 basis on 19 December 2012. So if you had owned 1049 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Pan African Resources shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.9% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Pan African Resources shares which in turn could have impacted Pan African Resources's share price.
