Dividends are periodic payments a company makes to shareholders out of the profits it generates, provided it has a dividend policy. They assure a stable, steady stream of returns to shareholders -- unlike capital gains, which are subject to fluctuations triggered by company-specific and extraneous factors.The coronavirus pandemic and its impact on companies has put this steady stream of income at risk.Unable to cough up cash to meet dividend payments at a time when businesses are reeling to keep operations going, several companies have announced suspension of dividends or pauses of stock buybacks.Dividends In Value Vs. Growth Investing To compare the returns of a stock, a metric called dividend yield is used. Dividend yield is the amount of dividend paid by a company for a year, divided by its current stock price and expressed in percentage terms.Value stocks -- stocks that are trading at a lower price relative to their fundamentals -- invariably have a higher dividend yield. Most value stocks belong to mature companies that can afford to pay dividends due to their strong cash flows.Unlike value stocks, growth stocks are mostly up-and-coming companies that do not have the luxury of steady cash flows to fund dividend payouts. Even if their cash flows support payouts, they would often rather invest in growth opportunities than on dividends. Investors in these companies rely on capital gains or share price appreciation to realize returns.Due to the high P/E ratios of these companies, their dividend payouts tend to be lower.See also: 8 Best Investment Strategies During A Recession D
