That feeling when Dividends make their way to your EE wallet😅💰.
Even R1.00 makes me cry😅😍.
Lol let's be serious and talk about Dividends 💯.
What are Dividends?
Dividends are sums of money that a dividend paying company pays out to their shareholders. They are taken from the company's profits so if a company you're invested starts doing well..
you can expect to get nice Dividends when the company decides to pay out their Dividends. These amounts are also proportional to how many shares you own so the more shares you buy the better returns on your Dividends💰.
The following point discussed is taken out if this ebook below. It has all the information you need to from budgeting, investing, trading, side hustles to increase your income all the way to knowing how to research companies that you'd like to invest in.
That book taught me how to perform a fundamental analysis on the viability of the companies I'd like to research. It's a very helpful book on getting you started on how to research stocks and make sound investment decisions based on research and not just guess work💯
How do you determine a company's Dividend pay out percentage? Companies usually keep their Dividend payout history open for public consunption on their websites.

Look out for a company's Dividend Yield percentage!

1.'DivYield' is the percentage of a company's current share price that is payed to a company's shareholders.
Not all companies pay dividens!

As you can see below $PPE does not pay dividends to its shareholders however $ARM does.
This does not mean that you should only invest in companies that pay out dividends. Some companies don't pay out dividends but their share price performance is excellent which means it's shareholders make big profits when those companies do well.
These are the stocks in South Africa that boast the highest Dividend Yield percentage. I happen to only be invested in ABSA💀 for now.
If you're looking at only investing in dividend paying companies a good a place to start is looking at the company's Dividend Ratio. This will determine whether a company is using their profits to pay their shareholders or whether it's taking on debt.
As you continue investing
As you continue investing you will learn to research well and make very informed investment decisions💯.
Don't be this guy😅😂. A good guide/book can help you out and put an end to your rookie investment decisions and mistakes. You will learn a lot faster buy picking up a helpful book than by trying to learn everything by yourself🙏.
