VGI Partners share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 63.44% of net profits
Recently VGI Partners has paid out, on average, around 63.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.33% 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 10.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In VGI Partners 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.59 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 29 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
VGI Partners share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, VGI Partners 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.5454 up to $8.109. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while VGI Partners 's is 1.1527. This would suggest that VGI Partners 's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
