Generation Development Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 100% of net profits
Recently Generation Development Group has paid out, on average, around 100% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Generation Development Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Generation Development Group 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.02 per share.
Generation Development Group '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.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 March 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Generation Development Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Generation Development Group 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.8269 up to $1.79. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Generation Development Group 's is 1.1968. This would suggest that Generation Development Group 's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
