YGT pays $.12 per quarter = $.48 per year, which at $7.00 per share, without getting the calculator out, comes out at roughly 6.8%. You should note though, that under Bush's looney new tax plan, there is a simple (=rather complicated) formula for calculating the taxability of dividends. You actually have to make money in the current year, and pay taxes on those earnings before you can distribute them as tax-free dividends. His formula for avoiding the double taxation of retained dividends is such tht it would crete a recordkeeping nightmare when you calculate the capital gain or loss on any stock you sell. Republicans think that just because they wear striped ties, they're businessmen. Not since Reagan let Jack Kemp call the signals has an administration had an ecomonic game plan this screwed up by ideology.
