Enghouse Systems share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 37.5% of net profits
Recently Enghouse Systems has paid out, on average, around 37.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Enghouse Systems shareholders could enjoy a 1.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Enghouse Systems's case, that would currently equate to about C$0.615 per share.
While Enghouse Systems's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Enghouse Systems may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Enghouse Systems's most recent dividend payout was on 29 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

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