Ready-to-Go Folios: Dividend Yield Folio

Fundamental Folios | All Folios


The Dividend Yield folio is designed for investors seeking income and moderate capital appreciation in return for moderate volatility, in line with the S&P 500.


The Dividend Yield folio is constructed from the largest 100 companies with the highest overall dividend, adjusted for market capitalization, utilizing the principles of fundamental investment analysis.

Dividend yield is a measure of the relative value of a company’s dividend. It is calculated by dividing the firm’s dividend by the firm’s current stock price. High dividend yields may be viewed positively, as it may be an indication that the stock is undervalued.
