Dividend payout ratio: 50% of net profits
Recently Johns Lyng Group has paid out, on average, around 50% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.45% of the current stock value.

In Johns Lyng Group 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.07 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 27 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
