Recently Robert Half International has paid out, on average, around 38.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Robert Half International shareholders could enjoy a 1.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Robert Half International's case, that would currently equate to about $1.44 per share.
While Robert Half International's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Robert Half International may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Have Robert Half International stocks ever split?
Robert Half International stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 13 June 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Robert Half International stocks which in turn could have impacted Robert Half International's stock price.
Robert Half International stock price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Robert Half International's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $47.435 up to $104.73. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
