One of the biggest issues facing investors today is finding reliable income.
Unbeknownst to most folks, most of stocks’ returns come from dividends, NOT capital gains.
Indeed, according to a study performed by the London Business School, when you remove dividends, stocks have returned a mere 1.7% in average annual gains over the last 109 years.
To put this into perspective, this is less than you’d make from owning long-term US Treasury bonds (2.1%) over the same time period.
Indeed, if you’d invested $1 in stocks in 1900 and reinvested your dividends, by 2009, you’d have made $582 (adjusted for inflation). Take out dividends and you’d have only seen $6 from price appreciation. Yes, $6 from 109 years’ worth of capital gains.
The fact of the matter is that most businesses fail overtime. Trying to pick winners (stocks that will rally) is extremely hard.
So by focusing on those companies that pay dividends, you’re effectively focusing on those that have already succeeded because:
1) The company has to have generated some kind of cash flow to pay the dividend in the first place
2) The company has exhibited a commitment to shareholder returns by paying dividends (at the end of the day management’s culture sets apart winners from losers.
This is why I like big dividend companies so much… you KNOW you’re going to get paid for putting your capital to good use!
