Dividend Stocks for Earnings Season

Posted by D4L | Thursday, October 27, 2011 | | 0 comments »

Dividends are front-and-center again this week, grabbing the spotlight as earnings releases flood Wall Street. The slew of new dividend data that accompanies earnings is significant, particularly now. That's because uncertainty remains incredibly high in the market right now; coupled with a record low-rate environment, investors are clamoring for a share of corporations' record cash reserves right now. Dividends do that. And the Wall Street consensus is that they'll continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

With few low-risk ways to deploy cash right now, companies are opting to return it to shareholders through dividends and distributions rather than invest it in risks assets. As a result, investors are expecting Dow component stocks to have hiked their year-to-date payouts by almost 12% after earnings season is completed.
