Recently Cass Information Systems has paid out, on average, around 76.63% of net profits as dividends.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cass Information Systems shareholders could enjoy a 2.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cass Information Systems's case, that would currently equate to about $1.08 per share.
Cass Information Systems'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.

Cass Information Systems's shares were split on a 6:5 basis on 2 December 2018. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 6 shares.

However, indirectly, the new 16.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cass Information Systems shares which in turn could have impacted Cass Information Systems's share price.
