    Hi LarsVistii,

    Yes, normally dividend are paid to shareholders. 

    Some companies do not distribute dividend and even if a company does distribute dividends the board of directors might decide to only approve dividend for some classes of stock.

    Also dividends can be in the form of money or stocks.
