Dividend Yield(%)

(Last Financial Dividend per share / Closing Price) x 100

The dividend yield of a stock shows the gross return which can be obtained if a stock is purchased at the closing price shown. It is important to note that dividends declared are sometimes paid very late - as much as six months after the declaration. This may render exact computations of return a little difficult.

Dividend yield is an important indicator for investors who invest for regular income. Dividends of Malaysian companies are generally low. The market average for the KLCI-100 is only one third of the ongoing time deposit rates for one year.

In Specie
Dividend in specie or Distribution in specie

A phrase describing the distribution of an asset in its present form, rather than selling it and distributing the cash. In specie distribution is made when cash is not readily available, or allocating the physical asset is the better alternative.

An example of an in specie distribution is a stock dividend, which can be distributed to investors when cash is in short supply. It is common to see an in specie distribution made in the form of fractional shares such as 0.5 shares for each share held.

The phrase "in specie" is Latin for "in its actual form".

Often used in conjunction with "distribution in specie" or "dividend in specie"
