Dividends are payments made by a corporation to its shareholder members. It is the portion of corporate profits paid out to stockholders. 

 When a corporation earns a profit or surplus, that money can be put to two uses: it can either be re-invested in the business (called retained earnings), or it can be distributed to shareholders. There are two ways to distribute cash to shareholders: share repurchases or dividends.
