Is Australia and New Zealand Banking Group profitable?
Yes, ANZ is profitable.
The bank’s net income for FY2018, FY2019, FY2020 and FY2021 arrived at A$6.4b, A$5.95b, A$3.58b and A$6.16b, respectively.
For the half year that ended 31 March 2022, the bank reported a Statutory Profit after tax of A$3.53b.
Is ANZ a good buy?
For some investors, ANZ is a long-term buy and hold due to its consistent distribution of dividends over 40 years.
The bank also recently completed the on-market buy-back of A$1.5b of equity which can potentially escalate the value of each ANZ stock over time. This may even see dividend payouts go up in the future.
More bearish investors are citing inflation, fluctuating interest rates, geopolitical tensions and general financial market volatility as reasons not to buy the stock at this point in time.
Does ANZ pay dividends?
Yes, ANZ’s dividend history goes back to 1982. The bank has never paused distribution.
In 2021, ANZ stock paid an interim dividend of A$0.70 in July and final dividend of A$0.72 in December. The total for the year came to A$1.42 per share.
ANZ paid its next interim dividend of $0.72 on 1 July 2022.
Does ANZ offer shareholders a dividend reinvestment plan (DRP)?
Yes. ANZ’s DRP allows investors to automatically reinvest any dividends paid out by ANZ back into more ANZ stocks.
