Stock Dividend Calculator Inputs and Outputs
The Stock Dividend Calculator has a few inputs and outputs which would be useful if it's being mentioned one by one just so it's a little more comprehensible.
Price Per Share
price per share is the market value of a stock's
share based on the latest traded value. If you bought or just planning
to buy a dividend-paying stock, this is the field where you need to
enter it's value per share.
Dividend Per Share
The dividend-paying stocks usually pays investors though
cash dividend per share. Cash dividends came from the
company revenue that is distributed to all it's entitled investors.
This could be $0.5, even $1 per share or more.
Based on the
price per share and
dividend per share, a good investor calculates first the
percentage gain before buying a stock, if not already. The
percentage gain is the guaranteed cash dividend you will
receive from buying stock on it's latest share value.
Your Total Shares
The amount of cash dividend you will gain really puts much weight on
your total investment or number of shares you have on your portfolio.
Even if the company pays only a cash dividend of
share but you have
10,000 shares, that's
$2,000 guaranteed cash for you.
Current Share Value
The Current Share Value field on the
Stock Dividend Calculator above mainly is just a
reflection of the stock's recently traded price per share and your
total shares. This doesn't matter if you bought a stock 10 years ago,
this only reflects the actual latest value of your shares.
Dividend Revenue field displays the actual total
computation of the cash divided you will receive base on all of your
inputs in the calculator. Below it also shows the
Current Share Value + Dividend which will be your total
portfolio balance after the payment of your dividend.
