Week 5 Problem Set Chapter 10 (pages 345–348): Purchase Price of Stock $50.00 Selling Price of Stock $55.00 Dividend per Share $1.00 Realized Return 12% $1+ ($55-$50) / $50 = 12% Purchase Price of Stock $50.00 Selling Price of Stock $55.00 Dividend per Share $1.00 Return from Dividend Yield 2% Dividend / Purchased Price Capital Gain 10% Capital gain = ($55-$50) / $55 = 10% a.
