Abstract

This paper analyzes the reasons why corporations pay dividend. With the conduct of sample analysis, several opinions are proposed in the paper. Many researchers have put forward important theories, such as agency theory and signaling theory to explain the rationale behind dividend payment. Moreover, Apple’s stock performance and its dividend payout are analyzed to give a deeper insight into the existing theories. Lastly, this paper also provides advice on how to improve dividend policy. Further research will be made in the future
