  • Dividends Beat Inflation, Again 0 comments
    Apr 4, 2013 11:40 PM | about stocks: SPY

    Barron's recently published an article comparing dividends on S&P500 stocks with inflation, since 2007 to the end of 2012.

    Inflation is up a total of 12% since 2007.

    S&P500 dividends are up a total of 14% since 2007.

    Dividend growth beats inflation. Even over the worst dividend cuts thus far in the 21st century.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

    Additional disclosure: I have a few shares in many companies which might be found in the S&P 500 but I have no SPY or any other S&P 500 index fund.

    Themes: dividends, income, inflation Stocks: SPY
