Looking to pick a dividend stock on the New York Stock Exchange or the NASDAQ but you’re totally clueless on what companies even pay a dividend in the first place.

Well we have created a list of US companies who pay dividends to get you started. This list is by no means exhaustive and is only intended to lay a foundation for your own research. That being said, lets dive in first with a brief recap on what dividends even mean…

What is a Dividend?

A dividend is a share of a company’s profits distributed to shareholders, paid like a bonus to investors. Dividends are a way shareholders participate and share in the growth of the company, above and beyond the appreciation of the share’s price. It’s also good to note that not all companies on the stock market pay dividends, so we have decided to highlight some of the companies who do.
