Recently Cousins Properties Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 43.37% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.49% of the current stock value.

However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cousins Properties Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Cousins Properties Incorporated's share price.
