Income generation is a very crucial part of returns for a lot of investors. Dividends are usually less volatile compared to share price movements; although a significant share price movement with many strings attached can impact dividends. The income returns from holding a security over a period can be referred to as yield. It is hence wise to invest in businesses that have a reliable dividend history and have every chance of growing at a good rate providing a great yield, and this is what an ideal investment scenario for a person looking for long term income stream would look like.
