What is Dividend      in   stockt

A dividend is a distribution     of a  company's  earnings to  its share holders. 

The amount of the dividend is determined by the company's board of directors.

It is a way  for companies  to reward  their share holders for  their  investment  in the  company.

Dividends are  often paid  out quarterly,  but they can also be paid  out annually  or semi- annually.
