That's relatively low compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Hotel Property Investments share dividends

60%

Dividend payout ratio: 60.31% of net profits

Recently Hotel Property Investments has paid out, on average, around 60.31% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hotel Property Investments shareholders could enjoy a 5.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hotel Property Investments's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.193 per share.

Hotel Property 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.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
