UDR share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 73.85% of net profits
Recently UDR has paid out, on average, around 73.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), UDR shareholders could enjoy a 2.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In UDR's case, that would currently equate to about $1.448 per share.
UDR'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.
UDR's most recent dividend payout was on 31 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have UDR's shares ever split?
UDR's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 5 May 1993. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your UDR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for UDR shares which in turn could have impacted UDR's share price.
UDR share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, UDR's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$34.9854 up to US$57.06. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
