Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The basic rule is that for all equivalent shares, the dividend is shared equally. That is what you own, when you own shares - the right to receive dividends and the right to vote on the election of the officials who administer the 'pool'.
Shares also give you an equal share of voting rights... except that some companies have two lines of shares, one with and one without voting rights.
