Dividends4Life: Reasons Not To Flee Non-U.S. Dividend Stocks

"Is it time to flee dividend stocks?" That's what many investors are asking me amid the recent rise in bond yields. My answer: Don't abandon dividend stocks, but be selective. I've long been advocating that investors searching for yield should look abroad for dividend income, and I continue to stand by that call. Here are five reasons why:

1. Over the long term, dividend paying stocks tend to outperform, 2. International dividend income still looks good compared to the alternatives, 3. The stocks are likely to continue to pay higher yields for the foreseeable future, 4. The stocks look cheaper than their U.S. counterparts and 5. Non-U.S. dividend funds offer international diversification.
