What's the difference between stocks that gives dividends and those that do not? I understand giving dividends means that they do quarterly or annyal payout to the shareholders. So does it means that stocks with dividends are better? Thanks everyone for the help

There are usually 2 type of companies, growth type and mature type.

The growth companies tend to have low to no dividends as they need the capital to grow/expand/m&a etc...

The matured companies tend to have mid to higher dividends as their business is matured and have not much room to grow fast, thereby they require less capital and thus giving out higher dividends.

There are some which are in between these 2 type.

There are also companies which give more dividends due to the nature of it's business like reits.
