This module helps explain the concept of the dividend yield ratio and some of its financial implications. The module is similar to the previous one on the price/earnings ratio with the similar analysis of a fictitious company. There is not enough material in it for it to be of any value to a student and more information would be readily available from other sources such as a book. It is not an effective teaching module.
