Own Bank of Queensland (ASX:BOQ) shares? Here are the key dates to watch in 2022

A man in a suit looks serious while discussing business dealings with a couple as they sit around a computer at a desk in a bank home lending scenario.

The Bank of Queensland Limited (ASX: BOQ) share price has had a decent, if not spectacular, year in 2021 thus far. As it stands at today’s pricing, BoQ shares are up 6.64% so far this year, which might get close to 10% if you include the value of BoQ’s dividends and franking credits. In contrast, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is now up 10.43% year to date. The Commonwealth Bank of Australia (ASX: CBA) share price has managed a near-20% rise.

So now that 2021 is nearly behind us, what does 2022 hold in store?

Well, mostly, we don’t know. But here are the events we can predict with relative certainty.

What dates can BOQ investors look forward to in 2022?

According to Bank of Queensland’s investor calendar, the first date to watch out for is 28 February. That’s when BoQ’s half year ends. Six weeks later on 14 April, BoQ will deliver its half-year results for this period, as well as announce its interim dividend.

This said dividend will then be paid out on 26 May after trading ex-dividend on 4 May (perhaps someone at BoQ is a Star Wars fan). 2021’s interim dividend came in at 17 cents a share, so perhaps shareholders might be hoping for a 2022 pay rise.

After that, BoQ’s financial year ends on 31 August, so the bank will be holding its full-year results announcement on 12 October. As well as its decision on what the Bank’s final dividend will be. Following that, this final dividend will go ex-div on 27 October, and will hit shareholders’ pockets on 17 November. Again, 2021’s final dividend was a 22 cents per share payout, so it will be interesting to see what BoQ comes up with for next year.

Finally, BoQ will hold its annual general meeting on 6 December for the 2022 financial year. Just think, that is almost two Christmases away!

So that’s what BoQ has in store for investors next year. All that remains is for the passage of time to fill in the blanks on this schedule!

BoQ shares closed today at $8.04, up 0.63%. At this share price, BoQ has a dividend yield of 4.88%.
