Thanks to a recent increase in sales, the BMW Group has announced an increased dividend for the year 2022. In the past, this company has often posted an attractive yield for its stock on the stock market, which can be considered as a yielding stock. In this article, we offer you to learn more about BMW's dividend with its precise amount, the date of its payment, the next dividend as well as its current and historical yield over the last ten years.
In 2021, the BMW Group paid a dividend of €3.80 per share to its shareholders. This dividend corresponds to the dividend on the results of the financial year 2020.
BMW has also recently announced its dividend for 2022, which will be €5.80 per share for the financial year 2021.
As is the case for most German and European stocks, BMW's dividend is paid once a year with an ex-dividend date in May.
In 2021, the ex-dividend date was 12 May 2021 and the payment date was 16 May 2021.
The next dividend to be paid by BMW to its shareholders is the dividend for the financial year 2021. This is subject to a vote by shareholders at the Annual General Meeting before it is paid out.
At the end of the last board meeting, an amount of 5.80€ per share was decided. This amount will be detached on 12 May 2022 and paid on 16 May 2022.
It is noticeable that the amount of BMW's dividend for this year 2022 is much higher than last year's dividend. This is largely due to the fact that the company has managed the semiconductor shortage better than its competitors and has posted significantly higher sales in 2021, resulting in higher sales and profits with a 12.4% increase in revenue.
The company has therefore decided to thank its shareholders by increasing its dividend. It is also expected to launch a large share buyback programme this year.
BMW has been paying a dividend to shareholders without interruption and every year since 2001. This means that the stock has been a yielding stock for over 20 years. Here is the history of BMW's dividends over the last 10 years and their evolution over time.
Over the last ten years, BMW's dividend has shown a rapid increase with an average increase of 5.15% per year. Over the last 5 years, the increase has been slower with an average increase of 1.66% per year.
BMW's dividend yield is the ratio between the amount of the dividend paid by the company and its average share price. Thus, we simply divide the amount of this dividend by the share price to obtain the yield of this stock as a percentage.
This tells us that the amount of the dividend is not the only element that impacts the yield of this stock, as the stock price is also important.
In 2021, the dividend yield of the BMW share was 2.25%. With the increase of this dividend in 2022, this yield increases to 7.43%.
We also note that BMW's payout ratio is currently 10.12%. This rate corresponds to the share of the profits paid out to the shareholders by the group and shows us that BMW keeps a large part of its profits.
Over the last 10 years, the BMW Group has paid an average dividend yield of 3.68%, which is actually well below the last annual yield for this stock.
