Stock dividends
are paid out in the form of additional stock shares of the issuing company, or other companies (such as its subsidiary). They are usually paid in proportion to shares owned by shareholders (e.g., if a shareholder owns 100 shares, then a 3% dividend will increase his or her stock ownership by 3 shares).
