Recently Franklin Electric CoInc has paid out, on average, around 29.36% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Franklin Electric CoInc shareholders could enjoy a 0.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Franklin Electric CoInc's case, that would currently equate to about $0.62 per share.
While Franklin Electric CoInc's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Franklin Electric CoInc may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Franklin Electric CoInc's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 March 2013. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Franklin Electric CoInc shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Franklin Electric CoInc shares which in turn could have impacted Franklin Electric CoInc's share price.
