Annual Yield

Indicator Description

Small firms, start-ups, or companies with high growth potential typically do not pay out dividends or distribute a lot of their profits. These companies will have small yield. Alternatively, more established companies, ETFs, and funds that invest in bonds will have higher yields.

Yield generally refers to the amount of cash that is paid back to the owner of a security over a specific time (usually one year). It is expressed as a percentage of current market price, and usually amounts to all the interests and/or dividends paid over a given period. A higher yield allows the shareholders to generate returns on their investments sooner. However, investors should also be aware that a high yield may be a result of market turmoil or increased price volatility.
