Dividend yield is one of the factors that some investors consider when deciding whether it’s good to invest in a stock or not.
However, let me remind you that a relatively high dividend yield does not automatically mean that it’s logical to buy shares of that company.
Go back to the formula of the dividend yield so you’ll understand why.
Dividend Yield’s Formula
Dividend Yield = Dividend Per Share / Price Per Share
If Stock A issues a total of P1.00 cash dividend per common share for the entire year and the stock has a closing price of P100.00 per share for that year, the dividend yield of Stock A will be 1 percent.
High Dividend Yield Doesn’t Always Mean Good
Let’s use the formula.
Dividend Yield of Stock A = P1.00 / P100.00 = 0.01 or 1%
This means that if the price per share of the stock is in a continuous decline (bearish), the dividend yield becomes bigger.
I’ll create a scenario for you if in case you still didn’t get it.
Let’s say Stock A ended November and December this year at P100.00 and P90.00 per share, respectively. The stock issued a total of P1.00 cash dividend.
We’d like to get the year-end dividend yield. Therefore, we’re going to use the year-end closing price, which is P90.00 per share.
Dividend Yield of Stock A = P1.00 / P90.00 = 0.011 or 1.11%

I’ll mention the overall trend of each stock from 2015 to the present right after I show to you their rank.
Look at the Capital Appreciation or Depreciation Also
Don’t immediately jump into conclusion that you should buy shares of a company just because it has the biggest dividend yield in its sector or industry within a specific period.
Check the capital appreciation or depreciation of the stock first.
What good will the 1% or 1.11% average dividend yield do to you if the stock has been declining by more than its dividend yield every year?
Don’t put too much weight on the dividend yield of the stock. Check its historical price action also.
