Kathmandu Holdings share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 86.17% of net profits
Recently Kathmandu Holdings has paid out, on average, around 86.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kathmandu Holdings shareholders could enjoy a 4.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kathmandu Holdings 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.06 per share.
Kathmandu Holdings '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 14 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Kathmandu Holdings share price volatility

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Kathmandu Holdings 's is 1.1023. This would suggest that Kathmandu Holdings '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).
