Merchant House International share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 9.09% of net profits
Recently Merchant House International has paid out, on average, around 9.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Merchant House International shareholders could enjoy a 0% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Merchant House International 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0 per share.
While Merchant House International 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Merchant House International is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Merchant House International 's shares were split on a 110:100 basis on 24 August 1995. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 110 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Merchant House International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Merchant House International shares which in turn could have impacted Merchant House International 's share price.
