The dividend yield = Total Dividends / Purchase Price *100

= (\$ 1.80*4) / \$ 43*100

= 16.74%

capital gains yield = (Price at end - Purchase Price) / Purchase Price *100

= (\$ 47.50-43) / \$ 43*100

The total yield = ( Price at end - Purchase Price + Dividends) / Purchase Price *100

= \$ 11.70 / \$ 43*100
