That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), C-HRobinson Worldwide shareholders could enjoy a 2.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In C-HRobinson Worldwide's case, that would currently equate to about $2.04 per share.

While C-HRobinson Worldwide's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that C-HRobinson Worldwide 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 C-HRobinson Worldwide shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for C-HRobinson Worldwide shares which in turn could have impacted C-HRobinson Worldwide's share price.
