Bid Market – a market where there are more bids to buy, than offers to sell.
If the asking (sellers) size is bigger than the bidding (buyers) size it means people will sell shares and the stock price will go down.
If the bidding (buyers) size is bigger than the asking
(seller) size it means people will buy more shares, and the stock price will go up, and the stock dividend yield decreases.
The stock dividend yield (cost and current) is the interest as a percentage based on the investment.
How to calculate
Stock bought at $20 with an annual dividend of $1
Cost Yield = 1/20= 2%
Current value of stock is $25 with an annual dividend of $1
Current Yield = 1/25 = 4%
The BID-ASK SPREAD
The bid-ask spread is the difference between the ask and bid price, or the between the highest price a buyer is willing to pay the lowest price a seller is willing to sell. For example, if the bid price is $19 and the ask price is $25 then the bid-ask spread is $6.
