Dividends4Life: Keys To Successful Dividend Investing

Keys To Successful Dividend Investing

Posted by D4L | Friday, July 29, 2011 | | 0 comments »

Dividends can be an investor’s best friend. But not all dividends are created equal. In 2008 and 2009, the dividend landscape was turned upside-down. The GFC took its toll on companies from all sectors, with many cutting their dividends, including the big banks. Amid all the dividend cuts and suspensions, it’s worth reminding ourselves of five key lessons we can use to our advantage in the future.

1. Stock dividends are a privilege, not a right
2. Beware of chasing high yields
3. Focus on cash, not earnings
4. Diversification still matters
5. Selectivity is paramount
