Forward Earnings YieldView Financial Glossary Index
Forward Earnings Yield is the projected earnings yield for the current fiscal year. These are just predictions, however, so real data may differ significantly from estimates.
If a company has a forward earnings yield of 15%, it is estimated that the company will produce $0.15 in earnings for each dollar used to purchase the stock.
