Recently Global Ship Lease has paid out, on average, around 20.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.11% of the current stock value.

In Global Ship Lease's case, that would currently equate to about $0.75 per share.

Have Global Ship Lease's shares ever split?
Global Ship Lease's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 24 March 2019. So if you had owned 8 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Global Ship Lease shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Global Ship Lease shares which in turn could have impacted Global Ship Lease's share price.
