If suitable stocks are found, it is not uncommon for the dividends paid out to be reinvested in stocks.

On the one hand, the more shares the investor holds, the more is paid out, and on the other hand, profits are maximized through regular dividend increases. The purchase of shares is therefore important in order to exert this effect even further.

On the day the dividend is paid out, it is often the case that the share price will collapse by roughly the value that makes up the amount of the dividend payment.

What role does the dividend yield play in this?

How lucrative the dividend can be is shown above all by the dividend yield.

The dividend can be seen as an indicator of the economic success of a company as a whole.

A high dividend yield is a sign that the company is economically well positioned and that investors can participate in the company's success.

This supports the share price, as investors naturally like to invest in economically well-positioned companies. The consequence of this is that if the demand for stocks with high dividends increases, the prices will also rise.

However, these arguments only count if the dividend is paid on a sustainable basis.

This means that this paid out profit must be invested in the economic quality of the company in the long term.
