Informative and thanks, confusing a bit, though.

In very simplified terms, using the $89/share 2.1 dividend example, then, correct me if wrong, every 3 months for each share you get a check or reinvestment of $2.1, right? Or is it 2 bucks a year per share?

Most of the stocks listed in the paper show annual dividend, let's take walmart trading at $52.71/share with .95 div. (annual) (I am just curious to know what one might get per month, per share), then you get a 95 cent check every three months right?
