Easton Investments share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 81.4% of net profits
Recently Easton Investments has paid out, on average, around 81.4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Easton Investments shareholders could enjoy a 5.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Easton Investments 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.04 per share.
Easton Investments '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.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Easton Investments shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Easton Investments shares which in turn could have impacted Easton Investments 's share price.
