    1.15%

    Explanation:

    The formula to compute the dividend yield is shown below:

    Dividend yield = (Annual yield) : (market price) * 100

    where,

    Market price = $38.22

    And, the annual yield is

    = Capital gain - market price * loss percentage

    = $4.68 - $38.22 * 11.09%

    = $4.68 - $4.24

    = $0.44

    So, the dividend yield is

    = ($0.44 : $38.22) * 100

    = 1.15%
