I know a dividend yield is how much in dividends you get back, but what does the "above market" portion of that term mean?


Without context, "market" is generally defined by the average of an index. The average dividend yield of the S&P 500 is 2.2%, "above market" would be a yield above that. You could also average the yields of an industry and compare that way.
