Is Dividend Investing Is a Fad?

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, March 01, 2011 | | 0 comments »

As a group, investors are loving dividends right now. Just look at the attention dividends articles have gotten on the Fool.com website. Dan Dzombak's discussion of his high-yield portfolio is currently the most popular article on the website, but in recent weeks readers have also gone gaga for Brian Richards' crazy-simple dividend strategy and Anand Chokkavelu's warning about sky-high dividend yields.

My expectation is that we will see continued economic improvement and that will feed through to both market and consumer sentiment. Will I be able to avoid the sirens' sweet song when confidence returns? I'm certainly not above the behavioral tricks that Mr. Market uses to entice investors to do what's against their own self-interest, so I know I'll be challenged over the next few years to not follow the crowd -- at least to some extent -- as they flash the "all clear" sign and once again kick dividends to the curb.
