    MELI stock dividend and stock split

    The most common method for companies to distribute wealth among shareholders is to pay dividends in the form of cash or stock. When a company has a low level of liquid cash on hand, stock dividends are typically issued in lieu of cash dividends. It is the board of directors that decides whether a dividend should be declared and in what form it should be distributed. Dividend yield is also a financial ratio that shows how much a company pays out in dividends on its shares each year, which is something investors look for in a stock.
