Recently United Overseas Australia has paid out, on average, around 33.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), United Overseas Australia shareholders could enjoy a 5.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In United Overseas Australia 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.02 per share.
While United Overseas Australia 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that United Overseas Australia may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for United Overseas Australia shares which in turn could have impacted United Overseas Australia 's share price.
