I came across a USAToday article that had some interesting tidbits on dividend stocks which we’ve all come to know and love. Here are a few notes I found worth passing on:
- Over the past 20 years, the S&P500 has gained 202%. Add in dividends paid though and the return is actually 350%. That’s saying something about dividend returns as function of total return!
- Utilities stocks, usually prized for their high yields… tend to trade at a discount
