Pro-Pac Packaging share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 65% of net profits
Recently Pro-Pac Packaging has paid out, on average, around 65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Pro-Pac Packaging shareholders could enjoy a 3.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Pro-Pac Packaging 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.006 per share.
Pro-Pac Packaging '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 16 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
