    Add the dividends up for the previous four quarters and compare what that looks like as a percent of the current stock price, or the price you bought it at, to get real comparators of yield on a percentage basis.

    Sell covered calls immediately against new position for a half buck for two to three months for additional "yield" if you can't stand the thought of selling.

    Why people in at $16.50 wouldn't sell at $19 baffles me, because you always can get in lower, or at least sell a $17.50 and $20.00 call option for downside protection or additional yield, adds to my befuddlement, but I gave up trying to understand the buy and mold crowd a decade ago in a market that stopped rewarding buy and hold in 1999.
