It means that the company would share its profit with its share holders once every 3 months of the year. The Dividend % is decided based on the profits made by the company during the current fiscal quarter.

Let us say a company has a face value of Rs. 10/- and decides to declare a dividend of 25% it means that for every share you hold in that company you will get Rs. 2.5/- as dividend.

If a company manages its own retiements system, the funds of the system are lost if the company declares bankruptcy. In the United States there is a system for insuring retirement systems, but the payout to individuals is generally much less through insurance than would have been provided by the retirement system itself. If a company has its employees contribute to a retirement system managed by a third-party provider, those employees who are vested in their accounts may not loose them if the employer declares bankruptcy.

No, the definition of ex-dividend date is trading without the dividend. Any stock purchased "ex-dividend" date is not entitled to the dividend. AND equally as importantly OFFSETTING this - is the insatnt that happens the stock price is reduced by the amiunt of the dividend being paid. NO you cannot "steal" a dividend - that is buy it the day before the divideden gets paid (or ownership date actually) - and sell the day after - all you do is get the dividend and the equally lower stock value.

Generally, the price of a stock will rise around the same amount as the announced dividend. This may happen within a trading day or over a few days, because buyers are guaranteed a known return on their investment (the dividend). There is an element of risk involved in buying a share simply because it is about to go ex-dividend. A share's price will usually drop by the amount of the dividend very quickly after the ex-dividend date because new buyers won't be eligible for the dividend. Therefore, you could be holding a share that is worth less than what you paid for it and you will have to hold onto it for a while. But if the company's financials are solid, it is not unusual for the price to actually continue to rise. It depends a great deal on where the dividends are coming from, genuine profit or borrowings.

Because when people buy stock, that means they are paying a company a sum to have the right to own a part of that company. When this happens the value of the company goes up. However if people do not like a company they will sell the stock they own and get money back for it. When this happens the company now holds less money and its stock goes down. This happens with thousands of listings everyday on the stock exchanges.
