Johns Lyng Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 90% of net profits
Recently Johns Lyng Group has paid out, on average, around 90% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Johns Lyng Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Johns Lyng Group 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.09 per share.
Johns Lyng 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 1 September 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
