The above article mentioned the companies whose dividends have been recently announced and will be distributed in the coming days. Dividends are sure a bonus and reward for any investor, but should not be the only parameter and criterion for judgment of the company.
A company that is in its early days of business may not be as consistent in dividend distribution as its peer or may not do so at all, since it may require more investment in its growth and research work. On the other hand, a company giving out too many dividends may also not be a good sign, since it may indicate that the company is not investing further in its operations for growth and expansion or a new idea generation, which can halt the growth of the company in the future. Hence, an investor must make a decision covering all the important aspects before investing.
