Yield on Cost Calculator

Dividend yield (annual dividend divided by current price) is an important measure for investors interested in dividend-paying stocks. It helps investors compare yield and income received for different stocks and other asset classes.

As dividends grow over time, the yield on cost (annual dividend divided by original cost) measures the dividend yield of the original investment. When dividends increase with time, the yield on cost increases.

Use the Yield on Cost Calculator to compute the yield on cost for an investment given its buy price, annual dividend at purchase, the annual dividend growth rate and the number of years held.
