Dividend dominant

A dividend is a payment made by a publicly traded company to its shareholders, usually out of its profits. While it can vary, dividends are typically paid on a quarterly basis. Dividend-paying stocks aim to provide investors with a regular income stream along with possible growth in the value of the stock. Many high-dividend companies can be found in recession-resistant sectors, including consumer staples and utilities. In times of low interest rates or economic uncertainty, investors may turn to dividend payers.
