Yield on Cost assumes that you buy and the stock today, and hold it for 5 years. If the company raises it dividends at the same rate as it did over the past 5 years, the dividends investors receive annually in 5 years relative to the stock price today.

Yield-on-Cost=Dividend Yield %*(1+Dividend Growth Rate)^5
