Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks Are Just Right for Investors

Dividend Stocks Are Just Right for Investors

Posted by D4L | Monday, September 27, 2010 | | 0 comments »

Over the miserable past decade for stocks, there was a corner of the market where investors stood a better chance of finding winners. What corner was that? Given the title of this article, you can probably guess that the correct answer is "dividend stocks."

With that in mind, I've been exploring the world of dividend stocks a bit more closely, first by breaking up the S&P 500 to figure out where dividend stocks hide out in the various S&P industries. I then homed in on the historical performance of high-yield stocks and companies that had super-fast dividend growth. So what exactly are yields and growth rates that are not too high, not too low, but just right? That's certainly subject to debate, but for my purposes I grabbed all the stocks that had yields from 2.5% to 6% and three-year annualized dividend growth rates of 5% to 20%.
