There are many types of investments that pays out so called "dividends".
The common one are REITS and slow growing companies which has not much use of its cash so instead of reinvesting in its business, it is better to pay it out as dividends to shareholders.
Key here is to look out for SUSTAINABILITY of dividends when screening for dividend paying investments.
One metric you can look out for is comparing its FCF to its dividends paid.
