Australian Dividend Announcements for 8/4/2020
A dividend is a distribution of part of a company's earnings to its shareholders. When a company earns a profit, its board of directors can decide to reinvest the profit in the company (retained earnings) or distribute the profit to its shareholders in the form of a dividend. Dividends are most often quoted in terms of the dollar amount that will be distributed per each share of stock (dividend per share).
