Cash dividend definitely,with cash you will have the flexibility to spend or reinvest the amount,plus it is shiok ti see money coming into your account without "working"
Cash dividends, unless you intend to hold the stock forever and pass it down as a heirloom. Odd lots can be sold via your broker (not brokerage platform) and comm is S$40 a pop
I agree with Gabriel. I think that cash dividend is better than stock as right now I'm stuck with some odd lots and I do not know how do I dispose off it.
I would choose cash. Because I want to avoid the odd lots for my stocks most of the time. However, if the scrip dividend is given at a very good discount, I opt for it.
Odd lots are hard to sell in the market.
