Dividend is a recurring payment from a company in the form of cash paid directly to the shareholder's brokerage account. In most cases, dividends occur quarterly but in some cases companies pay annually. There are two types of dividends: regular and special. Regular dividends are consistent and are rarely modified except for small annual increases as set by the Board of Directors. Special dividends are infrequent (ie, less than 1% of companies annually) and occur when a company has extra cash. Some pricing services may record a spin-off as a special dividend.
