Stocks paying large dividends

Posted by D4L | Monday, May 24, 2010 | | 0 comments »

Investors who have been getting stomach aches watching their stocks go up and down are reaching for dividends to find relief. It's easy to understand why. Dividends, those steady and often increasing cash payments made by companies to stockholders, are one thing investors can hang onto during unsteady times.

be careful when you're chasing stocks that pay lofty dividend yields. Many times, the yields are high because the stock price has fallen. If a stock is in freefall because the company paying the dividend is in trouble, you could see your entire annual dividend get wiped out in just one bad trading day. Even so, buying dividend paying stocks can be a good strategy for investors looking for a little more predictability in their investment results. You can find stocks that pay dividends at most financial websites.
