If you look at the basic listing in Google Finance there is an entry titled Div/yield. In the case of ATVI the entry is 0.20/0.89 which means that they paid a dividend of 20 cents per share which is .89% (20 cents divided by $22.54).Most often this is paid in cash, but, you may have a choice with your brokerage to either receive it in cash in which case it will be put into a cash account in your brokerage account or you can have it reinvested which will buy some fraction of new shares. Dividends are taxable but it is not capital gains tax although the tax rate may be the same. Taxes are not automatically withheld. You will have to account for the dividends received when you do your annual income taxes.Bob
