- Market participants believe that dividend-paying stocks can provide a regular stream of income, even during challenging times.
- A stable dividend policy indicates consistent payouts. However, an increasing dividend yield could be a positive or a negative sign.
- Investors always keep an eye on companies that can provide a steady income in the form of dividends to withstand uncertain market conditions, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many businesses offer rewards to their shareholders in the form of dividends. Stocks that pay dividends can offer sustainable and often higher dividend yields with the possibility of capital gain and dividend growth. A dividend yield strategy can help investors discover potentially undervalued shares with lower downside risk, assuming the dividend is safe.
However, dividends are not guaranteed and are decided by the board of a Company.
