What are dividends? Dividends are a distribution of a portion of an organization’s earnings which is decided by the board of directors to a class of its shareholders. Dividends can be quoted in terms of the dollar amount each share receives, also known as dividend per share or a percent of the current market price, also referred to as the dividend yield. Dividends can be provided in the form of cash, stock or property. Many organizations offer dividends to their stockholders while high-growth companies are hesitant to offer dividends due to their profits being reinvested to help sustain higher than average growth.
Forms of Payment Cash dividends are most common and are mostly paid in the form of a cheque. In the form of investment income, it is the most common method of sharing profit in an organization with the shareholders. For each share owned, a declared amount of money is distributed. Therefore, if an individual owns 100 shares and the cash dividend is $0.50 per share, a cheque will be issued for $50. . Stock or scrip dividends are paid in the form of additional stocks of the shareholders; usually issued in proportion of the shares owned. For example, for every 100 shares owned, 5% stock dividends will yield 5 extra shares. Property dividends are paid out in the form of assets from the corporation. In most cases they are rare and most frequently are securities, however, they can take other forms such as products and services.
The Importance of Dividends Dividends are important to a company because it is one of the simplest ways to communicate their financial strength and stability. While reducing market uncertainty, they are the evidence of both the profitability and financial health of the company. Dividends cannot be manipulated, disguised, restated, or written off.
