We can see lots of debates and questions regarding to the pros and cons of dividend investing. The reason is – a dividend is not free money, since it’s a transfer of money from a company to you. With an example, we could say that if a company’s value is $1,000 with 100 shares,and this company pays a dividend of $1 per share, the company is worth $900, as it pays $100 as dividend.
