That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), National Grid PLC ADR shareholders could enjoy a 4.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your National Grid PLC ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.2% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for National Grid PLC ADR shares which in turn could have impacted National Grid PLC ADR's share price.
