About Dividends

When a company is considering how much of its profit to pay in dividends, they are up against various conflicting interests. The shareholders clearly want a share of the profit in return for their investment in the shares, but they also they want the company to grow in the future. To grow in the future, the company needs to invest a proportion of the profit. Whatever is invested can't then be paid to the shareholders as dividends.

The Board of Directors have to try to take account of these conflicting interests and decide on the level of dividend they are going to recommend to be paid. This recommendation is then considered at an Annual General Meeting of the company. The Directors should be in the best position to decide what needs to be re-invested and how much can be spared to be paid out as dividends.
