Gross Yield

Dividend Paid x 100

Market Capitalisation

 

Benchmark: 2-3

Dividend paid to shareholders divided by market capitalisation (the stock market value of the company). This gives the return on investment for shareholders (excluding profits/losses made from trading shares). Generally, the lower the yield the greater the confidence in the future performance of the company (bear in mind the returns offered on “safe” bank investments).
