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.

Ingenia Communities share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 47.73% of net profits

Recently Ingenia Communities has paid out, on average, around 47.73% 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), Ingenia Communities shareholders could enjoy a 1.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ingenia Communities's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.105 per share.

While Ingenia Communities's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Ingenia Communities may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Ingenia Communities's shares ever split?

Ingenia Communities's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 18 November 2015. So if you had owned 6 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 Ingenia Communities shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ingenia Communities shares which in turn could have impacted Ingenia Communities's share price.

Ingenia Communities share price volatility

INA.AU volatility(beta: 0.63)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
