Emeco Holdings share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 11.36% of net profits
Recently Emeco Holdings has paid out, on average, around 11.36% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Emeco Holdings shareholders could enjoy a 2.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Emeco Holdings 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.013 per share.
While Emeco Holdings 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Emeco Holdings is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Emeco Holdings 's shares ever split?
Emeco Holdings 's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 18 November 2018. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Emeco Holdings shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Emeco Holdings shares which in turn could have impacted Emeco Holdings 's share price.
Emeco Holdings share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Emeco Holdings 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.7219 up to $1.3548. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Emeco Holdings 's is 2.02. This would suggest that Emeco Holdings 's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
