Pact Group Holdings share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 57.14% of net profits
Recently Pact Group Holdings has paid out, on average, around 57.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Pact Group Holdings shareholders could enjoy a 2.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Pact Group Holdings 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.08 per share.
Pact Group 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 24 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Pact Group Holdings share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Pact Group Holdings 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.9643 up to $3.9. 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 Pact Group Holdings 's is 1.2913. This would suggest that Pact Group Holdings 's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
