A stock transfer agent manages and maintains the records and the accounts of individuals and entities that hold stock in their own name on the records of the company, sometimes referred to as “stockholders of record,” or “registered stockholders.” The stock transfer agent issues and cancels stock to reflect changes in ownership, handles lost, destroyed or stolen certificates, ensures all stocks are properly accounted for and that dividend payments are made to stockholders of record. The transfer agent does not maintain records of shares bought and sold through brokerage accounts. (Such stock is said to be held in "street name".) Those records are maintained by the brokerage firms through which the shares are bought and sold.

Chevron has a long history of paying quarterly dividends to their stockholders. Chevron's Board of Directors reviews the dividend level regularly. There is no formal dividend policy, and payment of a dividend is solely at the Board's discretion. The Board is guided by a series of factors in making its decision regarding the timing and amount of dividend payments. The factors considered include balancing cash flow, investment needs and the future financial strength of the corporation. In addition, the desires of stockholders for larger dividends and Chevron's goal to provide superior returns are considered.
A history of past dividends payments can be found on the Investor Relations Dividend Information page.
