Mitchell Services share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 36.67% of net profits
Recently Mitchell Services has paid out, on average, around 36.67% 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), Mitchell Services shareholders could enjoy a 0% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Mitchell Services 's case, that would currently equate to about A$N/A per share.
While Mitchell Services 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Mitchell Services 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 29 June 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Mitchell Services 's shares ever split?
Mitchell Services 's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 7 February 2020. So if you had owned 10 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 Mitchell Services shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Mitchell Services shares which in turn could have impacted Mitchell Services 's share price.
Mitchell Services share price volatility
