2. Tax on Dividend = 10%
How to calculate dividend yield:
Just take the dividend amount multiply by 90% (less 10% for tax) , divide it by the stock's price, and then multiply by 100 to convert to a percentage.
Net Dividend Yield = Dividends x 90% / Stock Price x 100
An example, HOLCIM PHILIPPINES, INC. (HLCM) declare a cash dividend Php 0.98 per share, and then the closing stock price per share is Php 14.78. Using the stated formula, Holcim dividend yield as:
5.96% = 0.98 x 90% / 14.78 x 100
