Barrick Gold Declares $0.10 Dividend

On February 15, 2023 the company declared a regular
quarterly dividend
of $0.10 per share ($0.40 annualized).
Shareholders of record as of February 28, 2023
will receive the payment on March 15, 2023.
Previously, the company paid $0.05 per share.

At the current share price of $15.57 / share,
the stock’s dividend yield is 2.57%.

Looking back five years and taking a sample every week, the average dividend yield has been
2.33%,
the lowest has been 1.35%,
and the highest has been 4.10%.
The standard deviation of yields is 0.62 (n=237).

The current dividend yield is
0.38 standard deviations

above
the historical average.

Additionally, the company’s dividend payout ratio is 1.63.
The payout ratio tells us how much of a company’s income is paid out in dividends. A payout ratio of one (1.0)
means 100% of the company’s income is paid in a dividend.
A payout ratio greater than one means the company is dipping into savings in order to maintain its dividend – not a
healthy situation.
Companies with few growth prospects are expected to pay out most of their income in dividends, which typically
means a payout ratio between 0.5 and 1.0.
Companies with good growth prospects are expected to retain some earnings in order to invest
in those growth prospects, which translates to a payout ratio of zero to 0.5.

The company has not increased its dividend in the last three years.
