Earnings that are distributed to shareholders as dividends. They are stated in dollar amount per share and paid quarterly. Dividend Reinvestment Programs (DRP) give you the option of reinvesting dividends to purchase additional stock shares. Dividends are taxable income in the year they are paid.

Dividends are payouts to corporate shareholders based on a portion of the company's profits.

But if we have prefered stock we need to seperate prefered stock dividends and take its balance for common stock dividends by:Earning per share = Balance after prefered stock dividends / Number of shareOne more Dividends per share refer to balance for common stcok after we seperate balance after prefered stock dividends to both side, common stockdividends and retained earning.Dividends per share = Common stock dividends / Number of shareis that right? if another have any ideas please let me know.Thanks.!
