The AAII Boston Chapter presents...

Dividend-Paying Stocks: The Winner’s Game

    Discussed by:

    Roger S. Conrad
    Co-Founder, Capitalist Times; Editor, Conrad's Utility Investor

As the Federal Reserve gets ready to wind down quantitative easing, conventional wisdom says that all things income-related are headed for trouble, particularly dividend-paying stocks. Ironically, for decades it’s been shown that returns on these stocks follow the growth of the underlying companies that pay the dividends, just like other stocks. The key to making money isn’t to try to forecast interest rates, but to keep tabs on businesses’ health. Conrad draws on 30 years of experience highlighting the best of the dividend-paying stock sectors, from utilities and energy stocks to telecoms and Canadian real estate investment trusts.
