We must know that there are two ways to make money from the equity stock market:

  • Appreciation of Capital
  • Income from Dividend

 

Appreciation of capital occurs from the timely variation in the prices of the stocks you trade while dividends are corporate earnings that companies provide to their shareholders at various times during the year.

Companies that pay high and consistent dividends can be said to be great companies. Everyone knows this.
Companies that pay inconsistent or low or no dividends cannot be said to be bad companies.

 

World’s most expensive stock (It cost more than one crore in INR) – Berkshire Hathaway of Warren Buffet doesn’t pay dividends at all.

One important thing to know about dividends is that after the announcement of dividends, the stock price is reduced by the same amount as the dividend on the ex-dividend date. Suppose there is a company XYZ, whose stock is trading at Rs 100 and a dividend of Rs 5 is announced. On the ex-dividend date, the price would become Rs 95. It is not compulsory that it happens but generally, it does happen. You should keep this in mind.

 

If you are wondering what is the ex-dividend date, it is simply the date till which if you have the shares, you will be entitled for the dividend.

  1. Hi
    Is the Ex-dividend date is considered for the stock opening or closure.
    Will I have to hold stock till day end or market opening is enough. For both dividend as well bonus.

  2. Should have included Hindustan Zinc and Vedanta in the list. Also shud have given the dividends yield of such companies so readers can know which are the highest payers among the list.
