Investing in the stock market becomes more interesting when the stock pays back lucrative returns. These returns often come in the form of a dividend. Dividends are a share of a company’s income that is distributed among its shareholders. It is a form of acknowledgement that is shown to investors and shareholders who support the company by investing in it. The management of a company determines the amount of dividend that is to be paid to the shareholders. 

Dividends act as important factor for investors while deciding on a stock. Choosing a dividend-paying stock could help an investor to expand his earnings and profits. Every established company tends to increase their dividends year on year. As a result, such stocks could be highly beneficial for investors. 

While investing in the stock market, an investor must be aware of three important dates that are concerned with a dividend. These dates are- Ex-dividend date, record date, and dividend payment date.  

Ex-dividend date: By this date, investors must buy shares of a company in order to become eligible for getting a dividend. 

Record date: This is usually the day after the ex-dividend date, on which the names of the eligible shareholders are registered. 

Dividend payment date: This is the day on which the final dividend amount is paid by the company to the eligible shareholders.
