Stock dividend

• The payment to existing owners of a dividend in the form of stock.

• A payment of additional stock to shareholders, rather than a cash dividend. Such payment increases the number of shares held but does not alter a shareholder's proportional investment in the company.

• Payment of a corporate dividend in the form of stock rather than cash. The stock dividend may be additional shares in the company, or it may be shares in a subsidiary being spun off to shareholders. Stock dividends are often used to conserve cash needed to operate the business. Unlike a cash dividend, stock dividends are not taxed until sold.
