Dollar General Total Payout Yield % Explanation

Similar to Dividend Yield, Total Payout Yield % is a measurement of shareholder return. Dividends is not the only way that companies are able to distribute their excess cash back to the shareholders. The other way to distribute the cash is a stock repurchase. The stock repurchase buys back the company's own shares from the marketplace. This results in a reduced number of oustanding shares, making each share worth a greater percentage of the corporation.
