- Why does a company pay dividends at all? 10 answers
Before asking any questions I'd like to say that I'm not an economist, investor, entrepreneur etc. I just want to know how the world works.
My first question is why would giant companies (Apple, Google, Samsung...) issue dividends?As far as I know only small and medium companies issue them (or at least should) to attract investors, but companies that don't need investments don't have a reason to waste their money.
Second question - why are Google's stocks so expensive and they don't even issue dividends (and they probably don't have a reason to)?
