Investing in stocks in developed countries has long been a part of everyday life for professionals and ordinary people engaged in entirely independent business from the stock market. Most families in the United States increase their savings by investing in stocks.

Did you know that long-term investment in stocks brings the highest return compared to other investment alternatives such as savings, real estate or domestic pension funds?

For example, the American S&P 500 index, as a benchmark of stock market movements, has had an average yield of about 11% per year since 1957 (when it was created), including all recessions and crises in that period!

Investing in stocks and regulated access to more than 150 stock exchanges in the USA, Canada, Europe, and Asia is now available just a click away from you.

Dividend yield

Top 5 stocks

A dividend is the distribution of a company's profits to its shareholders. When the company operates with a profit, the shareholders' meeting, depending on the business policy, decides to distribute a part of that profit to its co-owners, the shareholders.

The decision on the distribution of profits is made once a year, but dividends can be paid quarterly, semi-annually or in full once a year. Dividends can be paid in cash or additional shares that you can sell on the stock market after payment and thus cash out.

Dividend yield is an excellent way of saving while waiting for the share price to rise, i.e. capital gain. The top 5 highest dividend paying stocks right now are:
