How much money will I receive in dividends?

The amount of dividends paid is determined by the profitability of the company because dividends are paid out of the revenue generated. The dividend payout ratio (dividend paid divided by net income) helps understand what percentage of the company’s net profits are paid out as dividends.

How long can I hold IPO shares?

Investing in an IPO comes with an additional lock-up period, which can be anywhere between 90 to 180 days. During this period, shares can not be sold by company insiders, such as founders, owners, managers and employees.
