Dividends are paid from money taken from the shares and thus reduce the shares by the exact amount of the dividend. This is normal. If AT&T pays a one dollar dividend, the share price is reduced by one dollar. Tesla will pay a dividend of precisely 20% of Friday’s closing price for each dividend share.
That is completely wrong. There is plenty of information in the investors' threads, a lot of it correct. It costs Tesla virtually nothing to issue the dividend shares (technically, a book transfer of $0.001 per share).

I completely agree. The math doesn’t even work. Nobody is receiving an actual dividend.
