Recently Wheaton Precious Metals has paid out, on average, around 46.92% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Wheaton Precious Metals shareholders could enjoy a 1.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Wheaton Precious Metals's case, that would currently equate to about $0.605 per share.

While Wheaton Precious Metals's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Wheaton Precious Metals 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 Wheaton Precious Metals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Wheaton Precious Metals shares which in turn could have impacted Wheaton Precious Metals's share price.
