Time To Give Dividend Stocks Their Due

Posted by D4L | Saturday, September 01, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Dividend paying stocks have been ignored for a long period – now is the time to give them what they deserve. During the late 1990′s dot-com boom era, tech giants including Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) did not pay dividends. Their boards of directors considered that their billions of dollar in cash were better spent on research and takeovers as compared to rewarding shareholders.

Dividends play an important role in the total return of a stock though. According to Vanguard mutual fund founder John Neff, the return part of a stock provides not less than 40% of the total income. Since 2000, dividends have been increasingly significant. The stock markets have been weak, and dividend paying companies have scored the only positive return.
