This from the Announcements BB discussion:

show stocks where annual dividend is between 1.0 and 2.0
and add column dividend {dividend}

--------------------------------------
My question: How would you modify the script to include a column that shows dividend yield next to the dividend column (see above)?

Is this what you had in mind?

Fetcher[show stocks where annual dividend is between 1.0 and 2.0
and add column dividend {dividend}
set{dividendyield, dividend / close}
add column dividendyield
]

SAFeTrade,

That's it. I ran the script and the first stock to appear was SPY. It showed a dividendyield of .01 (short for .0117)

How can the script be modified to show it as 1.17% (instead of .01)?

Many thanks for your promptness.

SAFeTrade,

That's it. Thank you.

I ran it, and sorted on %div. Found PFACP near the top, with a 21.49% dividend, and the stock went up 30% today. Something fishy here, I think. Your take?

Some people on the forum think the dividend numbers are not correct.
I do not keep up with dividends.

Speaking of dividends, anyone have the guts to buy NEW and/or NFI at these prices? If these companies come out of this sub-prime debacle in good shape, yields are pretty attractive here. I've owned them both in the past, but it's been awhile.
