The Star Entertainment share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 162.7% of net profits
Recently The Star Entertainment has paid out, on average, around 162.7% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.67% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Star Entertainment shareholders could enjoy a 6.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Star Entertainment's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.21 per share.
The Star Entertainment'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 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
