Homemade Dividends


Homemade Dividends
A form of investment income that comes from the sale of a portion of shares held by a shareholder. This differs from dividends that shareholders receive from a company according to the number of shares the shareholder has.

The existence of homemade dividends is the reason some financial analysts believe that looking at a companies dividend policy is not important. If investors desires an income stream they will either sell their shares when they want the income or they will invest in other income-generating assets.
