Dividend payout ratio: 36.07% of net profits

Recently TJX Companies has paid out, on average, around 36.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TJX Companies shareholders could enjoy a 2.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TJX Companies's case, that would currently equate to about $1.075 per share.

While TJX Companies's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that TJX Companies may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Have TJX Companies's shares ever split?

TJX Companies's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 November 2018. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your TJX Companies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for TJX Companies shares which in turn could have impacted TJX Companies's share price.

TJX Companies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, TJX Companies's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$53.69 up to US$76.66. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
