Amateur and professional investors regularly research the prices of shares of the public companies of their choice as well as the historical dividends these companies issue. Finnworlds offers them and other users of historical dividends data the Historical Dividends API that gives clear and detailed account of public companies and their respective dividend-paying stocks. The Historical Dividends API is a data delivery format that allows rapid access to big amounts of dividend data that includes dividend rates and dividend dates.

The historical dividends database is related to Finnworlds Financial Statements Reports API. Dividends are issued once the corporate executive board examines the company’s annual financial statements and announces that the company is profitable enough to pay dividends to its shareholders. The Historical Dividends API works wells with the Financial Statements Report API as the data is constantly tracked and updated in both the historical dividend database and the financial statements report database. Be aware that companies issue dividend payments at different times during the fiscal year. The payment of dividends usually occurs quarterly, semi-annually, or annually.

The historical dividends data is frequently used as an input for some financial data applications and platforms. Most of the users who happened to be amateur or professional investors use the data on historical dividends for research and analysis of companies and their dividend-paying stocks.
