That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Thermo Fisher Scientific shareholders could enjoy a 0.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Thermo Fisher Scientific's case, that would currently equate to about $1.16 per share.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Thermo Fisher Scientific shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Thermo Fisher Scientific shares which in turn could have impacted Thermo Fisher Scientific's share price.
Thermo Fisher Scientific share price volatility
