Is Dividend Investing The Way Forward?

"Backward-looking screens and passive strategies can help, but can also leave investors exposed to risk and potentially to underperformance. I think the best way to seek stock dividends is a forward-looking strategy focused on finding future dividend growth,” said Scott Offen, co-manager of Fidelity Equity Dividend Income.

In a market where a number of much-hyped oil and gas plays are not living up to initial expectations, and where capital is proving more difficult to come by, investors need to be certain that their money is aimed at companies that are able to expand operations even as they give money back to shareholders through regular dividend payouts.
