Dividends4Life: 2 Reasons To Invest In Global Dividend-Paying Stocks

Investors looking for dividend income can consider adding foreign dividend stocks. I have written many articles before on why US investors must go overseas hunting for higher dividends. This article is another installment on the same topic. In addition to getting the benefits of portfolio diversification, adding global dividend payers also makes sense for a variety of reasons. Two of the reasons are discussed below.

1. Nearly two-thirds of the world’s total dividends are paid by companies outside the U.S. 2. Dividends paid outside the U.S. are much higher. Five top global dividend payers are listed below: British American Tobacco PLC (NYSEMKT:BTI), Vodafone Group PLC (NASDAQ:VOD), AstraZeneca PLC (NYSE:AZN), Sanofi (NYSE:SNY) and Commonwealth Bank of Australia (OTCPK:CMWAY).
