Dividends Payment

What is a Dividend?When you buy a share of a company, you become an owner of that company. You are entitled to share the profit the company makes every year—you shared in the risk, and you share in the reward. Some companies pay dividends. A dividend is a portion of the profit the company makes paid to each shareholder. For example, if Acme Lemonade Stands makes a million dollars in profit and has a million shares, the company could pay a dollar per share as a dividend. Why Do Some Companies Not Pay Dividends?

A company may not pay a dividend if its directors believe that it’s better to put the business’s profits to work making the business itself more valuable. Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway is a famous example of this; the company has grown through acquiring other good businesses, mostly in the US and Canada, many of which themselves pay dividends. If Buffet and his partner Charlie Munger ever felt that the best use of the company’s profits were to return it to shareholders, Berkshire Hathaway would pay a dividend.

An established business with a dominance in the market and few opportunities to grow doesn’t always have this luxury. In that case, the value of the stock depends on being able to pay a good and steady dividend. In other cases, the value of the stock depends on the company growing larger and making steadily more money. These growth stocks often do not pay dividends. Beware of one case: some companies facing difficult times might raise their dividend payouts to appear more attractive. Always check to see what the real cash flow situation is before you chase down the highest dividends.
