Do you buy them at market or limit prices?
Limits don't seem to trigger, presumably because I don't buy or sell 100 shares, so I buy at market.
Bid/ask isn't usually too bad, and it's not something you're going to trade actively.
In a nutshell, bought at today's price it's a flat 5.66% dividend yield forever.
There are minor details, but that's 96% of everything one needs to know.
The "minor details" being the future of inflation? ;)
Note the word "flat" was included in my description : )
The payout is fixed in nominal terms at $75 per share per year.
Simply divide 75 into your purchase cost to get your yield.
I wouldn't lose sleep, there won't be material inflation for years.
