Home / Markets / Stock Markets /  4 dividends, 1 bonus issue: These stocks will turn ex-date in the week Dec 5-9

A total of five stocks will be in focus in the trading week from December 5th to 9th due to their record date for dividend benefits and bonus issues. That being said, these stocks will turn to ex-date in the week. Generally, an ex-date is when the price of an equity share of a company gets adjusted for the dividend payout or bonus issuance. Some of these stocks are multi-baggers, while some have given double-digit returns year-to-date. These stocks are Panchsheel Organics, Hinduja Global Solutions, Aptus Value Housing Finance India, BLS International Services, and Can Fin Homes.

Typically, dividends are a form of incentive that is distributed by a listed company from their profits to shareholders. When a company pays a proportion of its profit as a dividend, any amount which is not distributed as dividends are put in the free reserves and surplus of that company.

Meanwhile, bonus issues are free additional shares given by a company to existing shareholders free of cost. A bonus issue increases the number of outstanding shares while reducing the share price in proportion to the number of bonus shares issued. It also creates implicit value per equity share and increases liquidity in equity shares on the stock exchanges.
