Perseus Mining share dividends

In Perseus Mining's case, that would currently equate to about C$0.008 per share.

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.
