Stock dividends

Companies usually return part of their cash flow to owners each year. These regular or extraordinary payments are called dividends. Dividends are paid on a monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis and their amounts are determined by the company's board of directors. 

ETF dividends

ETF-s pay dividends similarly to companies. Please note that the tax residence of the fund (ETF) might be different from its holdings and thus might be subject to different dividend tax rules.
