This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kirkland Lake Gold shareholders could enjoy a 1.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kirkland Lake Gold's case, that would currently equate to about C$0.75 per share.

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

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kirkland Lake Gold shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 110.5% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kirkland Lake Gold shares which in turn could have impacted Kirkland Lake Gold's share price.
