FYI: When it comes to dividends, the US may not be the best country for investors to look for a higher yield. US equities currently have a dividend yield of only 1.98%, well below the average of 3.51% for the 22 other major global economies that we track in our Global Macro Dashboard. The only country with a lower dividend yield is India with a 1.21% yield. A potential reason for this comparatively low yield in these two countries is simply higher equity prices. India runs away with the highest valuation of their equities with a P/E of 28.56; the highest among the 23 countries in our Global Macro Dashboard. The US similarly is not cheap relative to the rest of the world as it possesses the fourth highest valuation of 18.33x earnings. That compares to a world average of only 15.72.
