Dividend stocks offer investors periodic returns, which are otherwise extremely rarely generated in the stock market. The market is highly vulnerable, which makes investors exposed to risk. However, dividend stocks are good for diversifying one’s portfolio and adding an additional layer of security to it.

Generally, dividend stocks are associated with minimal risk as compared to other market instruments. Their prices also remain stable in the market, as these stocks are issued by companies that are well-established.
