We have recently updated the display to provide a few extra details of each stock:
We have added information about the Dividend (Yield and Value) as well as the Earnings Per Share and Market Cap.
We hope these extra values can be used by students to make an informed decision on which stocks provide the best value. These values can also be used in class activities where students can report on the stock, often stocks that are high growth (meaning the value increases) have little dividend returns, all of the profits are reinvested back into the company. More mature and established companies distribute dividends back to shareholders as the capital growth of the stock is fairly constant.
