Recently The Estée Lauder Companies has paid out, on average, around 32.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.65% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Estée Lauder Companies shareholders could enjoy a 0.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Estée Lauder Companies's case, that would currently equate to about $2.07 per share.

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

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for The Estée Lauder Companies stocks which in turn could have impacted The Estée Lauder Companies's stock price.
