Dividends Beat Inflation, Again

|Includes:SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF (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.
