Recently South Jersey Industries has paid out, on average, around 70.38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), South Jersey Industries shareholders could enjoy a 5.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In South Jersey Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $1.195 per share.
South Jersey Industries'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.
South Jersey Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 28 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for South Jersey Industries shares which in turn could have impacted South Jersey Industries's share price.
