Argo Group International's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

However, indirectly, the new 13% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Argo Group International shares which in turn could have impacted Argo Group International's share price.
