cardinal08 how ?
achoi0 (990-1000+90)/1000 = 0.08
jimmy454 that is ambiguous, does the stock pay a dividend of $90 per share or $90 for all shares.
tijean25 Jimmy no stock in the world will pay 90 per share less about 25+ percent stock prices are lower than $ 90 per share.
That would never happen
jjhigdon $90 dividend on a $10 stock? That would be sweet...
mikus By definition: (P1 - P0 + D1) / P0
