VIEW DIVIDENDS IN THE MONITOR
Dividends are part of a company's net profit which is distributed to their shareholders. They are generally expressed as a number of cents per share. There is no requirement for companies to pay dividends and they may instead choose to reinvest the earnings back into the company.
Companies that pay dividends usually tend to do so at the same time every year. A majority of companies will pay an Interim dividend in the first quarter of their financial year and a final dividend in the last quarter of their financial year. Some companies may also pay a special dividend through the year.
To be paid a dividend you must have purchased shares in the company before the ex dividend date. The share price may fall on this date with the drop being related to the amount of dividend being paid.
