Dividend is a part of the profit earned by the company, paid to the holders of its stock.
Is it worth holding stocks until the dividend payment date, or can it sell them and invest in other assets?
A good economic situation is conducive to the earning of profits by listed companies and, consequently, the payment of dividends.
The policy of regular dividend payments has a positive impact on the company's image among investors, as it is a proof of its good financial condition, which allows it to share the profit with its shareholders.
The amount of the dividend for the investor is a certain value per stock, e. g. 1 USD for each stock held.
Dividend season - the period in which most companies announce their plans.
