That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ingredion Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 2.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ingredion Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $2.55 per share.
While Ingredion Incorporated's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Ingredion Incorporated may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ingredion Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Ingredion Incorporated's share price.
