Is New Jersey Resources Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.7% of the current stock value.

In New Jersey Resources Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.36 per share.
New Jersey Resources 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.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your New Jersey Resources Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for New Jersey Resources Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted New Jersey Resources Corporation's share price.
