- Dividend is one of the major aspects of a share that attracts long-term investors.
- There are many LSE-listed companies that distribute dividends periodically.
Dividends are certainly a cherry on the cake as the capital gains realised from the appreciation in share prices get an additional uptick if both the things are cumulatively taken into consideration. Moreover, the dividend payments help in maintaining a periodic income stream if an investor is holding a sizable number of shares.
There are a bunch of companies listed on the London Stock Exchange that announce a dividend on a regular basis, while there are some of them have dropped or deferred the dividend payments in the last year due to Covid-19 uncertainty in the businesses. Dividend yield is the foremost primary thing that makes the stocks attractive among the pack of hundreds of publicly traded entities.
