Dividend Right

The right of a shareholder to receive the same dividend that other shareholders of the same class receive. That is, if one holds common stock with no special features and the company declares that each shareholder is entitled to a 9 cents per share dividend, the company cannot arbitrarily decide to pay one shareholder any more or less than 9 cents per share.
