Income-seeking investors have long had a difficult time, given that interest rates have been so low for so long. And with bond yields falling even more this year than many people thought possible, the resulting flight to yield and safety has pushed prices of many dividend stocks to lofty levels. But it’s still not too late to consider dividend stocks — if you really need the income.
