Corning Incorporated share dividends

47%

Dividend payout ratio: 46.6% of net profits

Recently Corning Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 46.6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Corning Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 2.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Corning Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $0.94 per share.

While Corning Incorporated's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Corning Incorporated may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Corning Incorporated's most recent dividend payout was on 16 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Corning Incorporated's shares ever split?

Corning Incorporated's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 3 October 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Corning Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Corning Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Corning Incorporated's share price.

Corning Incorporated share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Corning Incorporated's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$34.2015 up to US$45.9984. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GLW.US volatility(beta: 1.08)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Corning Incorporated's is 1.0765. This would suggest that Corning Incorporated'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).
