Recently Cal-Maine Foods has paid out, on average, around 33.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.98% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cal-Maine Foods shareholders could enjoy a 0.98% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cal-Maine Foods's case, that would currently equate to about $0.125 per share.
While Cal-Maine Foods's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Cal-Maine Foods may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Cal-Maine Foods shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cal-Maine Foods shares which in turn could have impacted Cal-Maine Foods's share price.
