Ten stocks with an Annual Dividend Yield of over 7%

high dividend-yielding companies

The method by which a company’s earnings are distributed to the shareholders is termed as “dividend”. Dividend yield shows the return on investment in the form of dividends each year. A high dividend yield means the return on investment is more for each dollar of invested capital. The dividend yields on the Australian Securities Exchange are presently extremely high, from historical perspective; however, the investor must be careful of just blindly investing in high dividend-yielding companies. The dividend yield of the company is calculated as the total dividends paid over the prior year, divided by the current share price.

The increasing dividend yield might be because of two possible reasons:

Firstly, the company is earning more money because of which it decides to pay a part of its earnings to the shareholders.

Secondly, if the share price of the company tumbles down, the dividend yield might grow, which might indicate that the stock of the company is cheap, or the company is in severe difficulty.

Let us have a look at the ten stocks with dividend yield of more than 7 percent.
