Big River Industries share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 68.57% of net profits
Recently Big River Industries has paid out, on average, around 68.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Big River Industries shareholders could enjoy a 3.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Big River Industries's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.05 per share.
Big River Industries'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.
