Dividend Yield

We calculate the dividend yield for the Brazilian stock market as the ratio of total dividend payments in the last 12 months and the market value of equity. The dividend yield is a commonly used predictor of stock returns, and it should be interpreted in the following way: the higher the dividend yield, the higher the expected return of the stock market. We use only stocks selected following the criteria available here.
