A dividend distributes a portion of a company’s earnings to its shareholders, usually between two and four times a year in the form of a main payment and interim payments. Directors of a company have discretion to decide how much of a dividend to declare, and they don’t have to pay any dividend at all. For new growth companies making no profits, dividends are not generally expected. DividendInvestor.com™ provides dividend-paying stock information to help you learn the basics about dividends.
