Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks Continue To Get Attention

Dividend Stocks Continue To Get Attention

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, September 25, 2012 | | 0 comments »

In our view, finding stocks that are yielding more than the benchmark index, but that operate in stable industries, where there is bound to be less uncertainty about their future cash flows, is likely to offer some downside protection for investors. After all, a healthy and safe dividend yield should offer some solace in the midst of market volatility like we've seen over the last four-plus years, and relative to fixed income, dividend-paying stocks have the potential to produce both higher yields and long-term capital gains for investors.

While just four of the 22 mutual fund managers on our current list of Ultimate Stock-Pickers-- Amana Trust Income (AMANX), Columbia Dividend Income (LBSAX), Oakmark Equity & Income (OAKBX), and Parnassus Equity Income (PRBLX)--focus almost exclusively on income investing, there are plenty of managers that look to include dividend-paying stocks in their portfolios.
