A company distributes profits to its shareholders by declaring partial or full dividends. In most cases, the company partially distributes profits and keeps the rest for other purposes, such as expansion. The dividends are distributed per share. If a company decides to give Rs 10/ share, and if the face value of the share is Rs 10, it is called 100%. It is not compulsory for all companies to distribute dividends nor do they need to do so consistently.

However, there are some companies that are known to pay dividends regularly. So much so, that they are called dividend-paying stocks. It is very difficult to ascertain how much you can earn from dividends are a function of the profits a company earns. Though, we can gauge the scope based on dividend-paying stocks, some of which are given below-
