Stocks with High Dividend Yields have outperformed in the U.S.
Why are Dividends so Important?
"Dividends have historically accounted for more than half a stock's total return." Jeremy Siegel, PhD.
Stocks with High Dividend Yields have Substantially Outperformed the S&P 500 for 10 and 20 Year Periods.
Dividends are evidence that a Company is profitable. Corporations find it difficult to pay out false earnings.
An S&P study shows that stocks that paid dividends outperformed non-payers by 1.9% per year from 1980-2003.
