That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.39% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Enel Américas S-A shareholders could enjoy a 3.39% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Enel Américas S-A's case, that would currently equate to about $0.002 per share.

Enel Américas S-A'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 Enel Américas S-A shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 46.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Enel Américas S-A shares which in turn could have impacted Enel Américas S-A's share price.
