This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Church-and-Dwight Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Church-and-Dwight Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.022 per share.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Church-and-Dwight Company shares which in turn could have impacted Church-and-Dwight Company's share price.
