#### Formula:

Dividend Yield (DY)= (Annual Dividends / Current Share Price)
Rate of DY = DY x 100
### Example

A company's annual dividend is $5 and the current share price is 30$. What is its rate of return on dividends.

#### Solution:

DY = 5 / 30

= 0.166

Rate = DY x 100

= 0.166 x 100

= 16.67 %
