# Dividend Question?

Discussion in 'Stocks' started by bat1, Jul 21, 2010.

1. ### bat1

Let me explain this and see if I'm right

If you buy 1 share of XYZ for \$30 dollars with a 3% dividend

or 1 share of XXX for \$10 dollars with a 3 % dividend

Now I'm thinking I will buy 3 shares of XXX at \$10
that will give me now a 9 % dividend which is a
better deal then 1 share of XYZ at \$30 right?

as I own 3 times more of a 3% stock

My wife says no to her 3% is 3% no matter how many shares
you own

I'm saying no way! I own 3x more shares
more shares means more dividends...

Do the math if you are not convinced:
3% of \$30 = \$0.90 x 1 share = \$0.90.
3% of \$10 = \$0.30 x 3 shares = \$0.90

You get the same dividend either way.

give your wife all your money to handle and have her remove any sharp utensils from the house.
