Costa Group Holdings share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 63.71% of net profits
Recently Costa Group Holdings has paid out, on average, around 63.71% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.74% of the current stock value.

In Costa Group Holdings's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.09 per share.
Costa Group Holdings'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.
