Austin Engineering share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 25.96% of net profits
Recently Austin Engineering has paid out, on average, around 25.96% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.75% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Austin Engineering shareholders could enjoy a 3.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Austin Engineering's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.01 per share.
While Austin Engineering's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Austin Engineering 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 9 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Austin Engineering share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Austin Engineering's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.105 up to $0.235. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that Austin Engineering'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).
