Abstract

Dividend-paying stocks are often appealing to investors, especially ones from companies that have consistently increased their dividends. While all stocks that give dividends are not good additions to your portfolio, dividends have been "responsible for about 44% of the S&P 500's returns over the past 80 years," said Robert Johnson, president of The American College of Financial Service in Bryn Mawr, Pa.
