So, without knowing what that percentage applies to, we know to take note of whether current dividend yield is low or high as that makes a difference to our returns.
Having a high or low indicated annual dividend, on the other hand, doesn't seem to make much difference. Your two shares in Public Storage give you the same return as your 32 shares in the Latin American Discovery Fund: fifty bucks
You might think so at first but those 32 shares cost sixty dollars more to start with and return 9.88% of our original investment. Still, this is nowhere near the disparity of the current dividend yield examples.
Gafisa is just really good value, as I imagine are the other companies on the cheap stock list
