What is the amount of the dividend paid by Samsung?

The last known full dividend for Samsung shares is for the year 2021 and for the financial year 2020. The amount of this dividend was KRW 4098. It was paid in 4 instalments to the shareholders.

The Samsung Group has already started the payment of its 2022 dividend for the financial year 2020, with the first 3 payments having already been made. These were all of the same amount with 361 KW.

It should be remembered that as the Samsung Group is a Korean company, the dividend is expressed in KRW, the Korean currency.


When does Samsung's dividend payment take place?

As with all other listed companies that pay dividends to their shareholders, Samsung pays its shareholders each year a dividend that is calculated based on the previous year's results. Thus, the dividend that is currently paid to shareholders in 2022 is based on the calculation of the profit for the year 2021.

Samsung adopts the same payment schedule as publicly traded companies in the United States, i.e. it pays its dividend four times a year to its shareholders. This is a quarterly payment schedule. 

In 2021, for example, Samsung's first interim dividend was detached on 29 June 2021 and paid on 18 August, the second was detached on 29 September and paid on 17 November, the third was detached on 29 September and paid on 17 November as a special dividend and the fourth was detached on 29 December and paid on 15 April.


What is the next expected dividend for Samsung shares?

The next expected dividend on Samsung shares is the dividend for the year 2022, calculated on the basis of the year 2021. While we do not yet know the exact total amount of the dividend that will be paid to shareholders this year, as only 3 payments have been made so far and a one-off payment is still possible, it is estimated at KRW 1,444.

Indeed, 3 initial payments of KRW 361 have already been made to Samsung shareholders.


Samsung share dividend history :

As mentioned above and in the introduction, it has only been 2 years since Samsung Electronics paid a dividend to its shareholders. It is not yet possible to know whether this company is a company to hold yielding shares. Furthermore, the history of the Samsung dividend is very limited at the moment. Based on the few data we have at the moment, here is a short history of this payment and its evolution over time.

  • In 2022, Samsung's dividend was KRW 1,444 with a 183% decline
  • In 2020, Samsung's dividend was KRW 4,098 with a 100% increase

Once again, it is extremely difficult to get a clear picture of the evolution of Samsung's dividend over time, given the limited information currently available. As was the case last year, it is not impossible that Samsung may decide to pay an exceptional dividend to complete the first 3 payments of the dividend planned for 2022 and for the financial year 2021. We should therefore monitor the next payments made by this company to its shareholders to be sure.


What is the dividend yield on Samsung shares?

If it is interesting to know the dividend of the Samsung share, it is even more interesting to know the yield of this dividend. Indeed, the dividend is not the only element to take into account if you want to evaluate the profitability of this share. The yield, which is obtained by dividing the dividend by the stock market price of the Samsung share at the time of its issue, tells you more precisely what the profitability of this stock is. 

Currently and in view of the last dividend payments that have taken place for the Samsung share, this yield is around 2.49%. 

It is also interesting to know the payout ratio of Samsung. This ratio corresponds to the proportion of profits made by the group that it pays out to shareholders in the form of dividends. Currently, this payout ratio is around 23.18%, which is relatively low. This of course means that Samsung prefers to invest part of its income in its growth.


What is the multi-year dividend yield of the Samsung share?

Samsung's long-term dividend yield cannot be known at the moment, as the company only has a 2-year dividend history. However, here is a summary of the two yields observed to date.

  • In 2022, the dividend yield was 2.49%.
  • In 2021, the yield on this dividend was 3.95%.

This yield is in line with the average observed for listed companies in the same sector.
