Dividend yield plays an important role in the process of identifying the next investment, especially for hedge funds, which usually acquire large stakes and can obtain larger profits from dividend payments than smaller investors. However, dividends also represent a metric that shows the performance of the company, which is why it is important to look at the stock’s dividend yield while emulating hedge funds. With this in mind, for this article we have selected five companies whose stocks sport dividend yields of over 2.5% in which billionaire Ray Dalio‘s Bridgewater Associates held a long position as of June 30.
