Hi,

I can't remember, how often do companies pay out dividends? Is it 4x a year or just 1x a year? I think some companies do it so, and some companies do it the other way - is there some key to this, or what is the best way to find out? If I look at Coca-Cola, where do I find out how often they pay out dividends?

US dividend stocks usually pay out quarterly, buy it is more of a common practice than a rule of thumb. Some stocks pay out in only 3 out of 4 quarters. One quarter is added to the following dividend. This has some tax advantages.

In any case, the dividend payout date is known in advance. You can go to the shareholders meeting and if your vote is strong enough, you can change the dividend payout frequency. Smiley
