60%

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.22% of the current stock value.

However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Companhia Paranaense de Energia COPEL shares which in turn could have impacted Companhia Paranaense de Energia COPEL's share price.
