  1. 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.

    You can find lots of information at online sites such as Yahoo Finance or Google Finance. Your library may carry the weekly publication Value Line which offers one-page summaries of many stocks. These are updated every three months.
