List of highest / best dividend paying stocks in India 2021
Let’s have a look at different aspects of when does a company pays dividends, which companies are paying dividends in India, and should you invest in a company just because it pays good dividends?
When does a company pay a dividend?
A company announces dividends after the company board approves. Generally, many companies pass on the profits of the company in terms of dividends to its shareholders if they feel it’s the best use of the cash.
Although paying a dividend is good but some times it’s considered as the inability of the company to do CAPEX. As you can’t paint every stock with the same brush, dividend yardstick doesn’t hold true for most of the companies.
For example; most of the PSU companies in India are forced to pay dividends because Govt is the major stakeholder in the company and Govt wants to get money from the PSUs. So PSUs are most of the time the Best / highest dividend paying stocks in India but they are not always the best companies to invest in.
Also, some tech companies pay good dividends but that doesn’t mean that they are not looking for CAPEX. it’s just that their business model is different.
