Dividend yield

• Is a term that can have several different meanings. It can refer to an annualized (cash) dividend rate of return. This is computed by dividing the cash dividend by the price per share at the time of purchase. If the stock were trading at 100 and the dividends equaled $2.80, then the yield would be 2.80 percent. Also, the term is used on the assumption that the current trading price is the implied purchase price. The computation process remains the same.

• The dividends per share paid to shareholders, expressed as a percentage of the share price. Total return on your stock investment is usually measured by adding the dividend yield percentage to the percentage return from price growth of the stock.

Do not let yourselves be discouraged or embittered by the smallness of the success you are likely to achieve in trying to make life better. You certainly would not be able, in a single generation, to create an earthly paradise. Who could expect that? But, if you make life ever so little better, you will have done splendidly, and your lives will have been worthwhile. - Arnold Toynbee
