Dividends4Life: Growth and strength in dividend stocks

Growth and strength in dividend stocks

Posted by D4L | Monday, May 30, 2011 | | 0 comments »

Who doesn’t love a dividend? As Robert Powell points out in his Your Portfolio column today, it’s really not enough to just pick any old dividend-paying stock and forget about it. Investors who do that may be missing out on some great advantages and may be paying too much for growth opportunities. Other factors to consider are a track record of strong dividend growth and companies that make good use free cash flow. Powell reviews strategies and lists ETFs, funds and companies you’ll want to look at.

Everybody loves a healthy dividend-paying stock, but investors need to assess companies carefully to make sure the payout is likely to continue. That includes looking at the company’s free-cash-flow yield.
