I'm trying to "estimate" the dividend yield for Disney (NYSE:DIS). Let's pretend stock price will stay at $57 and the tax rate is 1%. Is it really the case that after 3 years with this stock the return is 17%?! Seems too high. After 3 years supposedly i will make $4000, which is 70% of my initial investment (100 shares @ $57 ea). Incredible.

Also, for year 1, why does it say Dividends are $75, and then Dividends earned are $430? I see where $75 comes from, but what's $430?

I'm using calculator at Investopedia. Here's a link to better picture

    You have put in the yearly dividend as quarterly dividend. – DumbCoder Apr 5 '13 at 10:26

DIS has a .75 dividend per year. It's a bit over 1.3% per year. I don't follow the rest of your math, sorry.

It takes a few second's effort to see the dividend is annual.

  • 0.75 per year or per quarter?? – defun Apr 4 '13 at 19:15
  • I edited my answer. Although I did say per year, I now list the dividend distributions the past few years. – JoeTaxpayer Apr 4 '13 at 20:37
