That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Atlantic American Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Atlantic American Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.02 per share.
While Atlantic American Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Atlantic American Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Atlantic American Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Atlantic American Corporation's share price.
