Asaleo Care share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 28.57% of net profits
Recently Asaleo Care has paid out, on average, around 28.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Asaleo Care shareholders could enjoy a 1.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Asaleo Care's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.02 per share.
While Asaleo Care's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Asaleo Care may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
