A dividend is a distribution of a slice of the company’s earning (net profit) which is decided by the board of directors for its shareholders. Dividends are usually issued as payments, shares or stockor as property dividend (property dividend can either include shares of a subsidiary company or any physical assets owned by the company such as inventories, equipment or real estate).

Companies which makes more profits will pay higher dividend to investors. Top companies tend to increase its profit over time, as profits grows, the dividend payment by the companies increases as well.

Mostly large and well-established companies give a decent dividend to their shareholders. Sometimes, they even give the dividend twice in a year (interim dividend and final dividend). Even this is not a hard and fast rule some companies give dividend three times in a year.

When you choose a strong company, whether a bad market or slowdown or recession, nothing stops such companies from giving dividend to their shareholders.
