However, in facts that not all companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange in 2016-2018 distribute dividends continuously. This study aims empirically to examine the effect of profitability, managerial ownership and investment opportunity sets on dividends.

The research sample of 18 companies from various industries which carried out corporate actions at KSEI. This research is a quantitative study using the common effect panel data regression . The results showed that profitability had a positive effect on the dividend payout ratio and the investment opportunity set had a negative effect on the dividend payout ratio. This research contributes that the adequacy of internal funding affects the level of dividend distribution.
