Dividends in Good Times and in Bad

Since 1940, dividends and dividend reinvestments have accounted for over 90% of the total return of the S&P 500.[1] Given today’s low yield environment, the consistency of dividend-paying stocks combined with the historical total return attribution has resulted in a large rise in popularity. These dividend-paying stocks offer the potential for capital appreciation, a track record of not cutting dividends for at least 25 consecutive years while growing in the prior year, and a composite dividend yield of 3.6%.[2] See more
