That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CSG Systems International shareholders could enjoy a 1.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CSG Systems International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.985 per share.

While CSG Systems International's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that CSG Systems International may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

CSG Systems International's most recent dividend payout was on 16 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CSG Systems International shares which in turn could have impacted CSG Systems International's share price.
