Those Incredible Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Thursday, June 16, 2011 | | 0 comments »

It's not a dividend investor's world these days. Most investors see dividends as a quaint concept like a bed and breakfast in the countryside, a horse-and-buggy ride through the city, or a pocket full of butterscotch suckers. They know that dividends are there, but they don't really take them seriously as a way to beat the market. Overlooking dividends is a big mistake.

dividend investors know that the best part of waking up is knowing that the companies that they own are sharing their profits through cash payouts. And that love of the ka-ching of dividend checks is well-placed, because it doesn't matter how you slice it: Dividends give investors a leg up. Between 1999 and 2010, the median return from all stocks with a market cap above $1 billion was a 3.2% loss. The median return from stocks with a market cap above $1 billion and a dividend yield of 3% or better was a 28% gain. And that's not adjusted for the dividend returns.
