That's relatively low compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Bravura Solutions share dividends

68%

Dividend payout ratio: 67.5% of net profits

Recently Bravura Solutions has paid out, on average, around 67.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bravura Solutions shareholders could enjoy a 2.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bravura Solutions's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.081 per share.

Bravura Solutions'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 2 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
