FAQ

What are dividends?
Dividends are payments that publicly traded companies make to their shareholders. Companies that offer dividends share their profits with their investors.
Companies that pay dividends usually do so quarterly. Dividends can also be paid over other time frames, for example monthly or yearly. Dividends provide investors with a regular source of income. They can also offer protection against market volatility.
The company’s board of directors determines the dividend amount per share. If a company pays out a $5 dividend every quarter and you own 20 shares, you will receive $100 in dividends quarterly.
Dividend payments are usually paid in cash. Some companies enable investors to automatically reinvest their dividends. This is called DRIP (dividend reinvestment plan).
    Why is dividend yield important?
    Dividend yields are important. They show annual dividend payout relative to share price. Dividend yield offers a way to understand returns as a proportion of your investment. As companies pay dividends on a per-share basis, this makes it easier to compare payouts.
      What is the dividend yield formula?
      Dividend yield is calculated as a percentage. It compares the ratio of a company’s annual dividend to its share price, using this formula:
      Dividend yield = annual dividend/ stock price * 100
        What is DRIP?
        Dividend reinvestment plans, also known as DRIP, are when companies automatically reinvest investors’ dividends to buy more shares. Most companies do not have DRIP.
        The advantage of reinvesting dividends is that they compound.
          How do you calculate dividend payments that are reinvested?
          The formula for calculating dividend reinvestment is:
          FV = P * (1+ r/m)^mt
          Where
          FV = future value of the investment
          P = the money invested or initial balance
          r = the dividend yield (in decimals)
          m = the number of times the dividend is compounded per year (compounding frequency)
          t = the numbers of years the money is invested for

          This may seem complicated, however that’s exactly why we created this stock dividend calculator.
          First calculate dividend yield using the formula

          Dividend yield = annual dividend/ stock price * 100
          If a share price is $50 and the annual dividend is $3.50, dividend yield is calculated using the formula:
          Therefore:
          Dividend yield = $3.50 / $50 = 0.07
          Now, entering the variables into the dividend reinvestment formula:
          Final balance = $1,000 * (1 + 0.07/1) = $1,144.90
          This means investing $1,000 into a company with 7% dividend yield would result in a $144.90 profit after two years and a total of $1,144.90, if dividends are reinvested over one year.
