Calculation

Dividend Yield measures how much a company pays out in dividends each year relative to its share price.


Explanation

Over the long term, the return from dividends has been a significant contributor to the total returns produced by equity securities. Studies by Elroy Dimson, Paul Marsh, and Mike Staunton of Princeton University (2002) found that a market-oriented portfolio, which included reinvested dividends, would have generated nearly 85 times the wealth generated by the same portfolio relying solely on capital gains.

Dividends may also qualify a lower tax rate for investors.

In dividends investing, Payout Ratio and Dividend Growth Rate are the two most important variables for consideration. A lower payout ratio may indicate that the company has more room to increase its dividends.
