Dividend Investing Is Here to Stay

Posted by D4L | Thursday, April 14, 2011 | | 0 comments »

Never before has there been such strong interest in stocks that pay dividends. Rather than bullheadedly trying to stand in front of the freight train of investor demand for dividend payments, companies are jumping on the bandwagon -- and investors will be the winners.

In its quarterly look at dividend investing, Standard & Poor's found that dividends are on the rise in a major way. A whopping 117 companies -- nearly a quarter of the S&P 500 -- increased or started paying dividends. That's a 50% increase over the number of companies raising dividends during the first quarter of 2010. All told, dividend payments during the quarter rose by a record $16.6 billion.
