Many long-term investors prefer to buy companies which give dividends because the ownership of shares has real cash benefits besides mere stock price appreciation. Dividend investing is all about investing in companies which are in a mature stage and distribute their profits on a regular basis. Such companies tend to be more stable and conservative in terms of their financial approach. While the future is uncertain, profits which are churned out and distributed in the form of cash is tangible and more certain. Since dividends are tax-free in the hands of the investor it makes these opportunities more lucrative.
This theme consists of companies which have a track record of paying regular dividends and whose latest dividend yields are 3 percent & above.
