A stock's dividend yield on cost refers to the annual dividend received from the stock in relation to the original investment cost. It is calculated by dividing the annual dividend per share by the original cost per share and multiplying the result by 100. This metric is useful for investors to understand the income generated from their investment relative to the price they paid for the stock.
