Let's start with the expected dividend yield of MSFT. It currently is trading around \$30 a share and it's paid \$0.43 year in dividends. Dividing 0.43 by 30 we get 0.0143 or about 1.4% dividend yield.

The growth of a company is usually measured by its yearly or quarterly earnings per share.

The total expected return of a stock is the amount the stock price increases (or decreases?) plus the dividends paid to the stock holders.
