A divident happens when a company significantly cuts its dividend.
Jimmy Dimon cut JPMorgan Chase & Co. dividend 87%. Now that's a divident!
A quarterly payment to shareholders of various equities, including owners of American Capital Strategies, often exceeding 10-11% annually. These healthy divident payments more than make up for having to explain the meaning of the word so often to newcomers to forums and chatrooms.
