This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 0.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.51 per share.
While Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies is investing more in its future growth.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$77.1494 up to US$99.8729. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
