Inditex dividend allows you to pocket 2.2% on November 2
Analysts had not liked Inditex so much for a long time . The titles of the textile giant show a purchase recommendation by the market consensus that FactSet collects since last May. Check the dividend schedule here.
So far in 2022, the Galician firm has left around 26% of its value on the floor, which places it among the most bearish on the Ibex 35 . This deterioration in the stock market has made it considerably cheaper: its 12-month PER (number of times the profit is included in the price) has fallen to 17.4 times, according to Bloomberg . This implies that the investor would take 17.4 years to recover his money through profit, when at the beginning of the year it took almost three decades.
Only since September 12, the company has left more than 10% on the floor, which contributes to increasing the attractiveness of its next dividend. On November 2, Inditex will distribute 0.465 euros , which is actually the sum of two dividends: the complementary one, of 0.165 euros, and an extraordinary one of 0.30 euros. After the latest declines, this delivery allows the investor to pocket 2.2%. The deadline to enter the value is Friday, October 28 (on Monday 31, its titles will already be listed without the right to receive that dividend).
