Abacus Property share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 50.71% of net profits
Recently Abacus Property has paid out, on average, around 50.71% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Abacus Property shareholders could enjoy a 4.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Abacus Property's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.17 per share.
Abacus Property'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 22 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Abacus Property's shares ever split?
Abacus Property's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 14 November 2010. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Abacus Property shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Abacus Property shares which in turn could have impacted Abacus Property's share price.
