Key data: Evolution Dividend

The dividend gives us an indication of the management’s expectation of earnings. Most businesses distribute some of the earnings to the stockholders. The dividend is considered to be a fee on the capital provided. A relatively high and increasing dividend backs up the stock price. Although you can never be sure whether or a dividend will be distributed or not, there are many businesses that always pay out a dividend. An investor who holds stocks in such businesses has an almost constant and mostly increasing income from his dividends.

On the other hand it should be noted that the dividend is lost capital for the company. Many young and strong growth companies do not pay out a dividend. Any dividend that is not paid out can be reinvested to keep the company growing strongly, which usually results in stock price increases that, in the end, deliver much better results to the investor than a dividend would.
