Recently Johnson Controls International has paid out, on average, around 42.13% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Johnson Controls International shareholders could enjoy a 1.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Johnson Controls International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.7% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Johnson Controls International shares which in turn could have impacted Johnson Controls International's share price.
Johnson Controls International share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Johnson Controls International's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$40.1994 up to US$76.55. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
