Forward annual dividend yield: 2.69% of stock value

56.4%

Dividend payout ratio: 56.35% of net profits

Perrigo Company has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 2.69% of its share value annually.

Perrigo Company has paid out, on average, around 56.35% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.69% 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 2.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Perrigo Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.
