Description

Dividends are the money that is paid to shareholders of a company out of its profits. Dividends can be paid in cash, shares or in kind.

Nowadays, the shareholders understand that the profits that are not distributed in dividends are reinvested in the company for a profitability that is greater than they would obtain in fixed rent. However, it is important to remember that dividends are also signaling markets and some companies, even if just for looking good, pay dividends on a regular basis.
