About Dividend stocks

Top dividend stocks on ASX can be defined as those Australian listed companies with a long track record of regular dividend payments. A Dividend is that part of the company’s net profit that then is distributed to the shareholders as a reward for their equity investment. These companies generally have well-established businesses and generate regular cash flows to fulfil their dividend payout policy fairly consistently.

However, dividend payments are always subject to two major aspects: profitability and dividend payout policy. Higher profitability generally increases the chances of higher dividend payout as the company has more cash to distribute (although not mandatory).

Also, entire earnings are generally never distributed to the shareholders. Instead, a part of it is also retained in the business to serve future needs. The management solely decides this via its dividend payout policy.

The dividend yield is one of the most popular metrics to screen the best dividend stocks in Australia and other countries concerning their current share price. Therefore, investing in high dividend stocks on the ASX is a no-brainer for investors who are looking for a regular cash flow apart from capital appreciation on their equity investments.
