I am open that I might be wrong, but I thought the general opinion is that the Cost basis yield is a more accurate measurement of your investment.Certainly current yield is far easier to determine. In practice, I don't track my cost basis yield as it really would take too much time. But in my mind, if I have a dividend stock drop but the payout remain the same, I am not thinking about the great yield I am now getting unless I were to invest additional funds at the lower price.
