In the nest quarter TCS again decide to pay interim dividend of Rs 10 per share to its share holders and at the same time the xyz company also decides to pay the dividend of Rs 15 per share to its share holders.

Now the Individual earns from dividend is TCS 100×10 = Rs 1000 and xyz company 27×15 = Rs 405 and the total income is 1405. At this time market crashes and individual investor is smart investor who has an eye on good dividend paying stock, he grabs the chance and add more 100 shares of the TCS and 250 shares of mid cap dividend paying company and 150 shares of the HCL Tech.
