Dividend payout ratio: 148.12% of net profits
Recently PZ Cussons has paid out, on average, around 148.12% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PZ Cussons shareholders could enjoy a 2.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PZ Cussons's case, that would currently equate to about 0.06p per share.
PZ Cussons'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.

PZ Cussons's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 26 September 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your PZ Cussons shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PZ Cussons shares which in turn could have impacted PZ Cussons's share price.
