What are Stocks?
Stocks represent an asset class that allows an investor to own a part of a company and even have voting rights depending on the type of shares issued. Shareholders receive part of the company’s profits based on the amount of shares they hold.
Stocks are usually sold on the stock market. Companies go public and issue stocks as a means to build capital and grow their business. Investors on the other hand, buy stocks to diversify their portfolio and seek to gain profit from stock price movements.

What are Dividends?
Shareholders receive dividends. Dividend payment represents the amount shareholders receive from the profits of a company in which they hold shares and this is determined by the board of directors of a company.
Dividends are usually paid in cash, however, they can also be issued in the form of shares or other property.
The dividend is usually stated in terms of monetary value, for example, how many dollars each share will yield, but can also be referred to as a percentage of the market value of the share, a term also known as dividend yield.
The date on which the dividend eligibility expires is called the ex-dividend date. If an investor owns shares the day before the ex-dividend date, they receive the next dividend payment.
