Dow Jones Industrial Average Dividend Performers

Following is information on the dividend yields of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (NYSE:DIA) components.  Dividend payments are not guaranteed, and are dependent, in large part, on the company’s ability to generate free cash flow and pay dividends and interest to senior securities holders.  Debt covenants and poor future prospects can also restrict the ability of companies to pay out dividends in the future.  Dividend yield is calculated as (Most Recent Full-Year Dividend) / (Current Share Price).  This means that the dividend yield moves inversely to the stock price: as the stock price declines, the dividend yield goes up, and vice versa.  High dividend yields may be the result of a company’s stock declining due to adverse market conditions.  Make sure to check out the other part in this two-part series of posts, which contains the other 15 stocks in the DJIA.
