Chunghwa Telecom Co'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 25% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chunghwa Telecom Co shares which in turn could have impacted Chunghwa Telecom Co's share price.
