In Duke Realty Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.02 per share.

Duke Realty Corporation'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 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Duke Realty Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Duke Realty Corporation's share price.
