Apart from the year 2020, which was marked by the COVID pandemic, Saint-Gobain has paid its shareholders uninterruptedly every year, with a dividend since 1999. It is therefore one of the yield stocks favoured by French shareholders. Let's discover together in this article the precise amount of the dividend of the Saint-Gobain share, as well as its precise yield today, its history or even its dates of detachment and current payment and its evolution in time.
The current dividend paid by Saint-Gobain is €1.63 per share. This amount is in fact the amount of the dividend paid to shareholders in 2022 and for the financial year 2021. This has already been paid to shareholders.
It can be seen that this dividend has risen sharply since last year, as the dividend paid in 2021 was only €1.33 per share for the financial year 2020.
Saint-Gobain's dividend is paid to its shareholders each year after passing through several stages. The amount of the dividend is first decided by the Board of Directors, after the publication of the previous year's financial results. It is then voted on by shareholders at the Annual General Meeting. Only then is it detached and paid out.
As Saint-Gobain is a French company listed on the stock exchange, the payment of its dividend follows an annual rhythm. This means that shareholders receive this dividend once a year, usually in June or July.
The last dividend paid by Saint-Gobain to its shareholders, i.e. the 2022 dividend, was ex-dividend on 6 June 2022 and was paid on 8 June 2022, two days later.
Of course, it is not yet possible to know the amount of the next dividend planned for the Saint-Gobain share, or even the dates of detachment and payment to shareholders.
It should be remembered that this dividend must first be calculated on the basis of the results for the year 2022. This calculation will therefore be made in the first quarter of 2023, after the official publication of these annual results.
It will then be communicated to shareholders by the Board of Directors in an official press release.
While Saint-Gobain had to suspend its dividend payment in 2020 due to the COVID pandemic that impacted it, it had previously paid a dividend every year to its shareholders without interruption since 1999. To better understand the evolution of Saint-Gobain's dividend over time, here is a history of its amount and its evolution from year to year.
Looking at the 10-year history of the amount of dividends paid by Saint-Gobain, we can see that the increase was very rapid last year, with a 22.56% increase. Over the long term, this evolution has been slower, with an average increase of 5.28% per year over 5 years and 2.77% per year over 10 years. Of course, this average is affected by the absence of dividends paid in 2020 by Saint Gobain and its shareholders.
The amount of the dividend alone does not allow you to accurately assess the profitability of the Saint-Gobain share for your stock portfolio. It is necessary to analyse the dividend yield, which is obtained by dividing the amount of the dividend by the share price at the time of issue.
The dividend paid by Saint-Gobain in 2022 had a yield of 2.87%.
Saint-Gobain's payout ratio is currently 27.94%. This means that the company does not dip too much into its profits to pay its dividend.
Over the past 10 years, Saint-Gobain Group has paid a dividend with an average yield of 3.05%, which is above its 2022 yield. Here is its history:
