Weingarten Realty Investors'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.

However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Weingarten Realty Investors shares which in turn could have impacted Weingarten Realty Investors's share price.
