If you are a U.S. citizen, then file I.R.S. form 5000-en, "certificate of residence", for which then TOT's dividend witholding tax will only be 15%, not 25%... if U R a U.S. citizen and still getting TOT's dividend reduced by 25%, then, sorry to say, U deserve it... have a nice day...
Probably ought to mention . . . that's in euros. €0.57 per quarter, €2.28 annually.
Also, don't forget that the dividend just paid was for the first quarter of this year. Those who noted that 3Q profite were up may be correct, but even if that's going to appear in the dividend, it's at least six months away.
The dividend is a yearly amount of $3.23 per share. There is a 25% foreign tax withholding which you will be credited for on your tax return as taxes withheld or paid. So, the short answer is the dividend is $3.23 per share/year.
I believe the Yahoo! number is incorrect and not sure why they have it wrong. Total has just started paying the dividend quarterly instead of semi-annually so that might explain the mixup. The latest dividend I received was 76.3 cents per share paid on Oct 13, after currency exchange. This was quarterly so the annual dividend is approximately 5.5%.
Stock price: approx $55 Dividend: $0.763 per quarter times 4 = $3.03 per year Dividend Yield = 3.03 / 55 = 5.5%
