That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Coca-Cola Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Coca-Cola Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.67 per share.
The Coca-Cola Company's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your The Coca-Cola Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for The Coca-Cola Company shares which in turn could have impacted The Coca-Cola Company's share price.
