A cash dividend is paid to a company’s shareholders, typically on a quarterly basis. The amount and frequency of a cash dividend is set by the board of directors. Cash dividends are reported on Form 1099-DIV of an investor’s tax return unless they are reinvested at the time they are issued. Companies picked to be one of the 10 Dogs of the Dow companies are selected for being the highest dividend paying stocks and always issue cash dividends to their shareholders.
