A dividend is a share of a company’s profit that is distributed to its shareholders.

When a company makes a profit from its activity, it can reinvest it in the business or distribute it among its shareholders. The same happens when a company carries out a special operation such as the sale of an asset.

Dividends are a way for listed companies to attract shareholders. There is a whole investment strategy built around dividends.
