Sibanye Stillwater share dividends

24%

Dividend payout ratio: 23.86% of net profits

Recently Sibanye Stillwater has paid out, on average, around 23.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 12.99% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sibanye Stillwater shareholders could enjoy a 12.99% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sibanye Stillwater's case, that would currently equate to about R6.13 per share.

While Sibanye Stillwater's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Sibanye Stillwater is investing more in its future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Sibanye Stillwater share price volatility

SSW.JSE volatility(beta: 1.45)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
