Dividend Paying Stocks: When a person buys stocks, they tap into the possibility of generating returns from two sources — capital appreciation, and dividends. While capital appreciation is the rise in the market price of an investment, a dividend is paid by a company to its shareholders as a reward for investing in the business.
