I'd take the yearly dividend rate from historical data, or the payment x frequency depending on what is available.



IBM paid $1.10 per quarter = $4.40 yearly, if I bought my shares for $100 then my actual yield is 4.40%


I'm not sure how you could deal with dividend updates.

I'm not sure if and when the new payment rate is available in the data?



IBM recently raised they quarterly dividend to $1.30 = $5.20 yearly, my same shares are now yielding 5.20%
