What is Capital Gains Yield?

Capital Gains Yield is the change in the price of an investment. It is listed as a percentage.

Formula

Capital Gains Yield =  ((Current Price – Original Price)/Original Price) x 100%

Example

An investment’s original price was $5,000 and is now worth $7,000.

Capital Gains Yield = (($7,000 – $5,000) / $5,000) x 100% = ($2,000 / $5,000) x 100% = 0.4 x 100% = 40%

Therefore, this investment’s capital gains yield is 40%.
