We’re happy to announce the release of our Dividend Payout Ratio calculator. For those who don’t know, the Dividend Payout Ratio (DPR) is a ratio that shows what ratio of earnings is going towards dividend payment on stocks.
This ratio says a lot about where a company’s priorities are, and if they are retaining enough earnings for growth. It is an excellent ratio for dividend investors to reference when deciding which stocks to pick.
A DPR that is too high can mean that the company doesn’t have enough earnings to maintain proper growth and continue paying out that nice dividend, and a ratio that is too low could mean a stingy company that you may not want to invest in.
If you would like to learn more about the Dividend Payout Ratio, then read our article: Dividend Payout Ratios. The DPR is a must-understand ratio if you want to be a dividend investor.
