What is your total (rate of) return on this stock? II. What is your capital gains yield on this stock? II. What is your dividend yield on this stock

Answer #1

**1. Rate of return is computed as follows:**

**= (Selling value - Purchase value + Dividend) / Purchase
value**

= ($ 12,460 - 300 x $ 44.90 + $ 630) / (300 x $ 44.90)

= - $ 380 / $ 13,470

**= - 2.82% Approximately**

**ii. Capital gain yield is computed as
follows:**

**= (Selling value - Purchase value) / Purchase
value**

= ($ 12,460 - 300 x $ 44.90) / 300 x $ 44.90

**= - 7.50% Approximately**

**iii. Dividend yield is computed as follows:**

**= Dividend / Purchase value**

= $ 630 / $ 13,470

**= 4.68% Approximately**
