Frontier’s dividend yield

Dividend yield determines a company’s annual dividend per share in relation to its market price per share. It suggests the amount of cash an investor is receiving for every dollar invested in the company’s equity. Investors look forward to high dividend yield stock as it brings stability to their income. As of October 26, 2017, Frontier’s (FTR) dividend yield was ~20.9%, which was higher than the same metric for CenturyLink (CTL) at ~11.7%. Windstream’s (WIN) dividend yield was ~32.1% as of the same date.

On October 26, 2017, Frontier stock was trading at $11.48. That was 3.4% below its 20-day moving average of $11.88, 8.2% below its 50-day moving average of $12.51, and 20.4% below its 100-day moving average of $14.42.
