Playing Offense with Dividends

Some companies are better at returning cash to shareholders than others. In today’s near-zero interest rate environment, these companies separate themselves from the pack by offering an attractive combination of a composite yield of 4.6%[1] and a 10-year track record of not cutting dividend payments. What’s more, companies with the confidence and discipline to return large amounts of cash to shareholders have often been in demand from income and value investors. Little wonder, given that between 1930 and 2012, dividends have contributed 42% percent of the S&P 500’s total return.[2] See more
