A2B Australia share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 98.77% of net profits
Recently A2B Australia has paid out, on average, around 98.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), A2B Australia shareholders could enjoy a 7.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In A2B Australia's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.08 per share.
A2B Australia'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 26 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
A2B Australia share price volatility

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while A2B Australia's is 1.1211. This would suggest that A2B Australia's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
