The paper examines the relationship between returns and dividend yield in the UK stock market, and introduces earnings-related data to the asset pricing model in the form of payout ratio.
The latter has a considerable effect upon the inferences which would otherwise be drawn from a study of the dividend yield-returns relationship in the absence of such earnings information. Payout ratio conveys additional signalling information and is an important adjunct to dividend yield in explaining returns.
