By Dividend Channel Staff, Wednesday, March 4, 10:11 AM ET
On 3/6/20, Rio Tinto plc (NYSE:RIO), B2Gold Corp (AMEX:BTG), and Patrick Industries Inc (NASDAQ:PATK) will all trade ex-dividend for their respective upcoming dividends. Rio Tinto plc will pay its semi-annual dividend of $2.31 on 4/16/20, B2Gold Corp will pay its quarterly dividend of $0.01 on 3/23/20, and Patrick Industries Inc will pay its quarterly dividend of $0.25 on 3/23/20.
As a percentage of RIO's recent stock price of $50.25, this dividend works out to approximately 4.60%, so look for shares of Rio Tinto plc to trade 4.60% lower — all else being equal — when RIO shares open for trading on 3/6/20. Similarly, investors should look for BTG to open 0.23% lower in price and for PATK to open 0.47% lower, all else being equal.

In general, dividends are not always predictable, following the ups and downs of company profits over time. Therefore, a good first due diligence step in forming an expectation of annual yield going forward, is looking at the history above, for a sense of stability over time. This can help in judging whether the most recent dividends from these companies are likely to continue. If they do continue, the current estimated yields on annualized basis would be 9.19% for Rio Tinto plc, 0.92% for B2Gold Corp, and 1.87% for Patrick Industries Inc.
