Now Is The Time To Buy Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Monday, June 21, 2010 | | 0 comments »

For dividend stock investors looking for regular paydays to add to their retirement funds, things have finally started to look up in 2010. High-yield dividend stocks are back in favor as companies add to their payouts and investors look for low-risk ways to supplement their retirement investment funds. Dividend stocks with high yields offer stability as well as a regular payout, making them the perfect investing strategy right now.

As we reported in April, dividend stocks are increasing payouts across the board, from high-yield dividend aristocrats to up-and-comers. In the first quarter alone, dividend stocks added more than $6 billion in an effort to make back some of the ground lost by cuts and cancellations from the high-yield heyday before the financial crisis. Dividends have been making a comeback, with 284 companies raising them in the first quarter, up 47% from a year earlier, according to Standard & Poor's.
