Recently AMCON Distributing Company has paid out, on average, around 16.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AMCON Distributing Company shareholders could enjoy a 0.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AMCON Distributing Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.
While AMCON Distributing Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that AMCON Distributing Company is investing more in its future growth.

However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for AMCON Distributing Company shares which in turn could have impacted AMCON Distributing Company's share price.
