Some companies invest all their earnings in the business, this is known as retained earnings, while other prefer to distribute these earnings or usually part of it to their shareholders. These payments are called dividends; each shareholder receives an amount that is proportional to the number of shares that he or she possesses.
Dividends are not fixed and can vary from a quarter to another; these payments depend on the company earnings and on the decision of the board of directors. They can decide to stop the distribution of dividends, so that the company can invest more in its growth, they can decide to increase the amount of dividend distributed...

Dividend per share, dividend yield, 5-Year dividend growth... are fundamental data derived from companies dividend numbers.
This item downloads four dividend ratios for all U.S. stocks. The data is saved in a database called "dividends_ratios".
It contains the following fundamental ratios/numbers:
Div. Yield %: The current dividend yield, which is the annual dividend divided by the closing stock price of the last Friday.
5 Yr Div. Yield %: Average of the last 5 years dividend yield. Each dividend yield is calculated by taking the last day's close price of the previous twenty quarters.
5 Yr Hist. Div. Growth %: This is the dividend growth rate or the annualized percentage rate of growth of a stock's dividend. The dividend growth rate is used in a security pricing model called dividend discount model. To obtain this ratio, an exponential regression from the twenty quarterly historical dividends (dividend history) is calculated, and then the beta of this regression is used.
Dividend: This is the dividend per share or the annual cash dividend divided by the number of shares outstanding.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
