Dividend Yield: Dividend yield is a ratio that measures the dividends paid out to shareholders relative to the market value of the share. In other words, it is a method that calculates the cash flow received back each time an investor invests his money in equity. It is important to keep in mind that higher dividend paying companies are generally those that have lesser requirement of capital to reinvest back in the business for growth, as a result they pay out excess cash in the form of dividend.
Formula for dividend yield is mentioned below:
Dividend Yield= Dividends Paid/ Value of one share of stock
