Saga Communications share dividends

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Saga Communications shareholders could enjoy a 3.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Saga Communications's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.
While Saga Communications's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Saga Communications is investing more in its future growth.

However, indirectly, the new 25% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Saga Communications shares which in turn could have impacted Saga Communications's share price.
