  • Dividend News – Tech Dividends, Payout Ratios and Beyond Utilities 0 comments

    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
