Suppose a stock had an initial price of $95 per share, paid a dividend of $2.00 per share during the year, and had an ending share price of $114. Requirement 1: Compute the percentage total return. (Do not include the percent sign (%). Round your answer to 2 decimal places (e.g., 32.16).) Percentage total return % Requirement 2: What was the dividend yield? (Do not include the percent sign (%). Round your answer to 2 decimal places (e.g., 32.16).) Dividend yield % Requirement 3: What was the capital gains yield? (Do not include the percent sign (%). Round your answer to 2 decimal places (e.g., 32.16).) Capital gains yield % Explanation: 1: The return of any asset is the increase in price, plus any dividends or cash flows, all divided by the initial price. The return of this stock is: R = [($114 – 95) + 2.00] / $95 R = 0.2211 or 22.11% 2: The dividend yield is the dividend divided by price at the beginning of the period price, so: Dividend yield = $2.00 / $95 Dividend yield = 0.0211 or 2.11% 3: And the capital gains yield is the increase in price divided by the initial price, so: Capital gains yield = ($114 – 95) / $95 Capital gains yield = 0.2000 or 20.00%

Explanation: 1: The average return is the sum of the returns, divided by the number of returns. The average return for each stock was: 2: Remembering back to "sadistics," we calculate the variance of each stock as: 3: The standard deviation is the square root of the variance, so the standard deviation of each stock is: σ X = (0.024141) 1/2 σ s X = 0.1554 or 15.54% σ Y = (0.046921) 1/2 3.
