Long-term investors may wish to consider dividend paying stocks as an alternative (or supplement) to fixed income investments. Dividend stocks can generate untold wealth for patient investors, and when reinvested, dividends offer investors a chance to exploit the miracle of compound interest. Unfortunately, the dividend yield of the S&P 500 is scraping along 120 year lows. More than ever, income investors must comb for opportunities in individual stocks, mutual funds, ETFs other investments with a margin of safety. We hope these articles and tools help you build a portfolio that provides sustainable income now, and into the future.
