It is our goal to build a portfolio of elite companies that pay shareholders and have the ability to continue increasing dividends.
- From 1926 through 2012, reinvestment of dividends accounted for 97% of the stock market's total return after inflation.*
- Weighting by dividends can raise a portfolio's dividend yield. research shows that portfolios comprised of the highest dividend-yielding stocks within the S&P 500** Index have historically outperformed the S&P 500 Index as a whole.
- Cash dividends provide an objective measure of a company's value and profitability -- one that cannot be manipulated.
- Potential bear market protection -- as stock prices fall, investors can buy more shares with reinvested dividends.
