What is Dividend Yield?

The Dividend Yield is a percentage showing the dividend returns earned by an investor, computed as:

  • Total Dividends Paid / Stock Price (Dividends divided by the company’s stock price)

Total Dividends may include regular and special dividends. Regular dividends are typically paid at a specific time of the year, while special dividends are non-recurring and distributed only in specific instances, such as when the company is experiencing profitability.

Important Dates related to Dividend Payments

Here are important dates that you need to know related to dividend distribution:

DateWhat It Means
Declaration DateThe company's announcement or declaration date that it will be distributing dividends
Ex-DateAlso called "Ex-Dividend Date," this is the first day a buyer of a stock is NOT entitled or is EX-cluded from receiving dividends
Record DateThe date a stockholder should be "recorded" in the books of the company to be eligible to receive dividends
Payment DateThe date dividends are actually paid to eligible shareholders

Take note that stock prices typically rise from the time the dividend was announced (Declaration Date) until the Ex-Date (the first day when buying a stock does NOT entitle the buyer to the dividends).

Stock prices would fluctuate and possibly rise right before the Ex-Date because investors are scrambling to buy the stock in order to be entitled to receive dividends. Historically, as well, stock prices start to decline from the Ex-Date onwards since those who bought the stock, just to receive dividends, start selling it because they have already earned the right to receive the dividends.
