Normally a company will pay only part of its profits as a dividend.
The company's profits are known as its earnings. When the earnings are divided by the number of shares in existence, we get the 'earnings per share' (eps). The P/E (price to earnings) ratio measures how many years of earnings per share at the current share price would be needed to pay for the share.
The yield is typically expressed as a net percentage (ie after income tax) of the current share price. Is a profit obtained from an investment; a return.
