  • Index : 

    A stock market index is a statistical measure of the state of the stock market, based on the performance of a number of representative stocks. Each index (from different stock markets across the world) has its own calculation methodology and is usually expressed in terms of a change from a base value. Thus, a percentage change of the index is more important than its numeric value. The index is usually considered to be reasonably representative of the performance of the stock market as a whole.

  • Dividend Yield : 

    This is the return on the money invested in a security. It is simply the dividend quoted in terms of a percentage of the current market price. For example, if the dividend declared is KES 1.00 and the closing price of the share is KES 20.00, then the dividend yield is 5%.
