Excelsior Capital share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 39.4% of net profits
Recently Excelsior Capital has paid out, on average, around 39.4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.55% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Excelsior Capital shareholders could enjoy a 2.55% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Excelsior Capital 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.04 per share.
While Excelsior Capital 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Excelsior Capital may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
