If the dividend amount grows at the same rate as the share price, the yield will stay the same over time. If you expect the dividend yield to increase over time, enter a slightly larger "Expected Annual Dividend Amount Increase %" than "Expected Annual Share Price Appreciation %."

Dividend Calculator Frequently Asked Questions

What are dividends?

Dividends are shares of a company’s earnings (i.e. profits) that are paid out to stockholders of that company on a regular basis (e.g. monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually). Dividends are declared by the company’s board of directors. It is common for dividends to be paid in cash. However, some companies will choose to pay them in the form of additional shares of stock.

Why is dividend yield important?

The dividend yield is a way to estimate the dividend-only total return of a stock investment. For growth investors, regular dividends can be reinvested to allow the benefit of compounding. That each time investors reinvest a dividend payment, they increase the number of shares they own. This results in a slightly higher payout in the form of a dividend, which then further increases the number of shares they own.

For income investors dividend yield is a reward for their risk. Dividend stocks offer at least a partial return on an investment, and many dividend-paying companies will increase the amount of their dividend over time.

What is the dividend yield formula?

Dividend yield is the amount of a company’s dividend expressed as a percentage. The formula is as follows:

Dividend Yield = Annual Dividend / Current Stock Price.

If a share of stock is selling for $35 and the company pays $2 a year in dividends, its yield is 5.7 %.

If the dividend stays the same, then stock price and dividend yield have an inverse relationship. When a company’s stock price goes up, the dividend yield goes down. Conversely when a company’s stock price goes down, the dividend yield goes up.

What is DRIP?

A dividend reinvestment plan (i.e. DRIP) automatically reinvests the cash dividends an investor receives to purchase more stock in the company. The dividends are reinvested without commissions or brokerage fees which allows investors to receive additional shares at a lower cost.

DRIPs issue shares using dollar-cost averaging. This technique averages out the price investors pay for shares over a long period. An investor is not buying shares at their peak price, nor at their lowest price.

How do you calculate dividend payments that are reinvested?

Because reinvested dividends take the form of additional shares of stock, the formula is easy to calculate. The total value is equal to the stock price multiplied by the total number of shares, including any shares purchased through dividend reinvestment.

Let’s say an investor owns 100 shares of Company XYZ and received a .50 cent per share quarterly dividend. They would have "earned" $50 (100 x .50) to reinvest. Assuming that using dollar cost averaging, the company’s share price was $25 the investor purchased two additional shares. The investor's total return is now 102 x (share price).
