VGI Partners share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 89.38% of net profits
Recently VGI Partners has paid out, on average, around 89.38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), VGI Partners shareholders could enjoy a 1.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In VGI Partners 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.1 per share.
VGI Partners '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 30 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
