Pacific Smiles Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 30% of net profits
Recently Pacific Smiles Group has paid out, on average, around 30% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Pacific Smiles Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Pacific Smiles Group 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.024 per share.
While Pacific Smiles Group 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Pacific Smiles Group 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 23 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Pacific Smiles Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Pacific Smiles Group 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.6592 up to $2.9222. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Pacific Smiles Group 's is 1.244. This would suggest that Pacific Smiles Group '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).
