Original Message Subject: What is "Relative Dividend Yield"? Author: danawhesse Date: 4/11/00 10:38 AM Number: 632 .....On Bloomberg's web site...in the Fundamentals section of a quote are listed both "dividend yield" and "relative dividend yield".....I don't understand what the "relative dividend yield" is or how it is calculated....For example, a quote from PG this morning 4/11/00: Price $64.6875 Quarterly Dividend $0.32 Dividend Yield 1.9246% Relative Dividend Yield 1.6940% Can anyone clarify ??? Thanks in advance.Relative yield, and Relative P/E, are measured against (relative to) others in the same sector. Well, at least that's what they claim!Nothing to analyze here!TAfool
