BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- Dividends are cheap right now. And they aren't going to stay this cheap forever.Right now, dividend value metrics are popping off the charts. Not only is the dividend yield of the S&P 500 still higher than it was anytime since the mid-1990s (safe for the absurd bargains floating around in 2009), the index's constituents are within a hair's breadth of paying out a bigger per-share annual dividend in 2012 than they've ever paid before.
