Forget talk of a dividend bubble; it's a "golden age" for dividends, ClearBridge's Hersh Cohen believes. Dividend stocks got extended in this year's run-up, not overpriced, he says. Besides, while price is important, "investors lose sight that their income can double in nine years" with dividend payers. Hersh can still find nicely priced examples, particularly in energy, such as Chevron (CVX), Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT).

    If bull markets climb a "wall of worry" do crashes slide down a "slippery slope of glee"?

    Dividend bubble is not applicable to those dividend-paying stocks with strong balance sheet unless the book is cooked.
