Highlights

  • A company can either accumulate its profit and earnings or distribute it to shareholders as dividend
  • The dividend yield is the dividend paid out by a company relative to its share price
  • Higher dividend yields do not always indicate attractive investment opportunities because a stock's dividend yield may be higher due to a declining stock price.

The distribution of profit by a company to its shareholders is known as dividend. Profit and earnings accumulated by a company can be either reinvested or paid out to shareholders as dividend. Dividend yield is the ratio which implies dividend paid out by a company relative to its share price.

Stocks with high dividend yields are usually lapped up by investors looking for regular income. However, investors should remember that higher dividend yields do not always indicate attractive investment opportunities because a stock's dividend yield may be higher due to a declining stock price.
