Dividend Insight

Issuer Direct has a dividend payout ratio of 36%, which denotes that the Company spends approximately $0.36 for dividend distribution out of every $1.00 earned. The dividend payout ratio reflects how much amount a company is returning to shareholders versus how much money it is keeping on hand to reinvest in growth, to pay off debt, and/or to add to its cash reserves.

Issuer Direct's trailing twelve months earnings totaled $0.50 per share, which is more than double compared to the Company's annualized dividend of $0.20 per share.
