That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's case, that would currently equate to about $2.06 per share.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shares which in turn could have impacted Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's share price.
