51.8%

Dividend payout ratio: 51.8% of net profits

Roche Holding AG has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 3.13% of its share value annually.

Roche Holding AG has paid out, on average, around 51.8% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.13% 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 3.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Roche Holding AG's case, that would currently equate to about $9.3 per share.
