Capital gains yield (CGY) is the price appreciation on an investment or a security expressed as a percentage.

The formula for calculating capital gains yield is:  CGY = (current price – original price) / original price x 100

 

Capital Gain is the component of total return on an investment, which occurs as a result of a rise in the market price of the security.

Because the calculation of Capital Gain Yield only involves the market price of a security over time, it can be used to analyze the degree of fluctuation in the market price of a security.
