Diversification of Investments:
Variation in the investment portfolio (long-term and short-term investments) among different types of securities and various companies in various sectors
Payment proposed by the company board of directors and approved by the general assembly to be distributed among the shares. For common shares, the dividend varies with company profitability and the available cash as the board of directors can decide to reinvest the profits in other projects or buy other assets rather than distribute those profits.
Dividend per share
The amount of dividend that a stockholder will receive for each share of stock held. It can be calculated by taking the total amount of dividends paid and dividing it by the total shares outstanding.
