A stock yields income to the investor on two counts. Firstly, there is the dividend income that you can earn on stocks but you need to select stocks with an existing dividend yield. The second is the capital gains on the stock but for that you need to be trading on opportunities. Of course, there are advanced methods you can deploy like lending shares or even doing arbitrage on the shares but they can be a little more complicated.
