Pro Medicus share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 47.51% of net profits
Recently Pro Medicus has paid out, on average, around 47.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.45% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Pro Medicus shareholders could enjoy a 0.45% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Pro Medicus's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.12 per share.
While Pro Medicus's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Pro Medicus 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 9 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
