Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks With Solid Cash Flows

Dividend Stocks With Solid Cash Flows

Posted by D4L | Saturday, June 18, 2011 | | 0 comments »

If a stock offers a high dividend yield, it often signal trouble at the company. The dividend yield, after all, is calculated by dividing the annual dividend by the current price -- if the price collapses due to a fundamental weakness in the company's outlook, the dividend yield is going to shoot higher. In other words, just because a stock offers a high dividend yield doesn't mean that the company will have the resources to continue paying the dividend.

To protect you from such a scenario, we looked for dividend stocks that have significant cash flows relative to dividend per share estimates. Companies with low dividend payout ratios choose to retain most of their income, instead of paying it out as dividends. This income can then be reinvested into projects that will hopefully generate future growth, which will help the company increase future dividend payments.
