That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

RIT Capital Partners share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 9819.44% of net profits

Recently RIT Capital Partners has paid out, on average, around 9819.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.87% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), RIT Capital Partners shareholders could enjoy a 1.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In RIT Capital Partners's case, that would currently equate to about 0.35p per share.

RIT Capital Partners'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 1 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
