A stock's dividend payout yield is a financial ratio that represents the dividend payment made by a company to its shareholders as a percentage of the stock's current market price. It is a measure of the return on investment from owning the stock in the form of the dividends received. The dividend payout yield is calculated by dividing the annual dividend per share by the stock's current market price and multiplying by 100 to express it as a percentage.
