And for what it's worth, if your grandfather's stock is pulling in 100% yields, that was one great investment decision he made. I can only hope for equal success in my future.So if I received some shares of a dividend-paying stock as a gift, my yield, no matter how meager the dividend, is infinity percent? How is that a useful metric? I guess I'm with the people who think the only yield that tells anything useful about a stock is one that is calculated using the current price of the stock.Jon
