AT&T’s dividend yield

A dividend yield is a measure of a company’s annual dividend per share relative to its price per share. It indicates how much cash an investor is getting for every dollar invested in a company’s equity.

A high dividend yield is a good sign, as it provides investors with stable income. AT&T’s (T) dividend yield was ~4.8% on January 10, 2017, higher than Verizon’s (VZ) dividend yield of ~4.3%.
