Investors Go Global Looking For Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, March 07, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Rising valuations and sluggish returns are shifting the focus on exchange-traded funds that feature dividend stocks, slowing money flows into domestic-stock funds and sending U.S. investors increasingly overseas to find juicier yields.Improving prospects for U.S. economic growth and renewed optimism that the euro-zone will be able to wade through its sovereign debt crisis are likely factors in the movement. Interest in dividend-producing stocks remains high in general, with interest rates on bonds and savings accounts at historic lows.

"With international stocks outperforming this year and a culture of paying higher dividends, it's natural to see more investors taking a global approach to income investing," says Jeremy Schwartz, research director at WisdomTree Investments, which sponsors 21 different global and international dividend-focused ETFs. "Three-quarters of the world's total dividend stream is coming from outside the U.S."
