Highest Dividend Paying Stocks
Dividend Yield Definition: Dividend yield (sometimes referred to as the dividend yield ratio) is simply the annual dividend per share divided by the stock price. While the annual dividend per share could be calculated by summing the most recent four quarters of regular dividend payments, investors usually calculate the dividend yield using the most recent quarterly dividend payment and multiply that by four to get what is referred to as the forward annual dividend. For example, if General Electric (GE) paid out $0.17 per share during the most recent quarter, the forward annual dividend would be $0.68 ($0.17 times four). If General Electric's stock price was $19.42, its dividend yield would be 3.5% ($0.68 divided by $19.42). Generally speaking, the dividend yield is used as a valuation measure with a stock having a low dividend yield relative to its
peers being overvalued and a stock having a high dividend yield relative to its peers being considered undervalued. For example, a relatively high dividend yield is required to be included as one of the ten highest dividend yielding Dow stocks that make up the Dogs of the Dow.
