Dividend payout ratio: 9.78% of net profits
Recently Perseus Mining has paid out, on average, around 9.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Perseus Mining shareholders could enjoy a 1.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Perseus Mining's case, that would currently equate to about C$0.008 per share.
While Perseus Mining's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Perseus Mining is investing more in its future growth.
Perseus Mining's most recent dividend payout was on 6 April 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 March 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Perseus Mining shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Perseus Mining shares which in turn could have impacted Perseus Mining's share price.
