Ok getting into the nitty gritty, say I pick woolworth (WOW) shares to start researching (I'm using comsec)
Say I brought them 1 year ago, on the 9/10/09 at 29.15.
Today they are worth say 30. So that is a yearly increase of 2.9%.
Under the research tab it says Dividend yield 4%, was that the last yield? or was that what it paid over the year?
Then down a bit more under growth rates, it says 10.6% for dividends under the 1 year. Does this mean it paid 10.6% dividends for the year, plus my 2.9% growth means I would of made 13.5%?
