Future Generation Investment Company share dividends

1%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.3% of net profits

Recently Future Generation Investment Company has paid out, on average, around 1.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.67% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Future Generation Investment Company shareholders could enjoy a 3.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Future Generation Investment Company 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.052 per share.

While Future Generation Investment Company 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Future Generation Investment Company is investing more in its future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Future Generation Investment Company 's shares ever split?

Future Generation Investment Company 's shares were split on a 1:220 basis on 17 August 2014. So if you had owned 220 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 Future Generation Investment Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 21900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Future Generation Investment Company shares which in turn could have impacted Future Generation Investment Company 's share price.
