That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.55% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Alliance Resource Partners L-P shareholders could enjoy a 5.55% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Alliance Resource Partners L-P's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

While Alliance Resource Partners L-P's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Alliance Resource Partners L-P may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Alliance Resource Partners L-P shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Alliance Resource Partners L-P shares which in turn could have impacted Alliance Resource Partners L-P's share price.
