Investors prefer high dividends rather than low dividends because of its certainty. To minimize the uncertainty that might occur, investors need information taken from the company based on the company's performance from the financial report such as financial ratio analysis. This research is aimed to know the effect of liquidity and profitability toward the dividend policy and to know whether the asset growth can be used as moderation variable in the effect of liquidity and profitability toward the dividend policy.
