Dividend Stocks to Pad Your Portfolio

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, June 22, 2011 | | 0 comments »

Rough market performance is pushing investors to the dividend stocks this month, as major market indices such as the S&P 500 teeter just a few points from sliding into the red for 2011. While capital gains continue to pummel investors in June, dividend are looking considerably more auspicious this year. Already, dividend increases for the S&P in 2011 have surpassed those of last year, and strong company fundamentals should continue to mean hefty payouts for income investors.

And research points to dividend-payers' ability to outperform on a capital gains basis in the long-term as well: Over the last 36 years, dividend stocks outperformed the rest of the S&P 500 by 2.5% annually, and they outperformed nonpayers by nearly 8% every year, all while paying out cash to their shareholders, according to a study from NDR.
