Dividends4Life: Dividends contribute 90% of stocks' total return

The data is clear: In a bull market, price gains dwarf dividends, with the latter only contributing about one-fifth of stocks' total return. However, in range-bound markets, which are characterized by weak price returns, that contribution expands dramatically, to approximately 90% of stocks' total return.

We are now in a range-bound market. Therefore, investors should expect weak stock price gains, while dividends contribute the lion's share of total returns. In that context, investors should tilt their stock portfolios toward high-dividend stocks that pay a sustainable dividend.
