A serious Yield for Income Investors…
When investors think of dividends, they tend to think of big, established companies. But you might be surprised to learn that a hefty number of small-company stocks offer enticing dividends, which not only add to an investor’s total return but serve as a shield against volatility. As of the end of 2016, roughly one-third of nearly 4,200 small-capitalization stocks—defined as those with market values of $5 million to $2 billion—paid dividends.
The All-Cap High Yield Model represents an equal-weighted portfolio of small, mid, and large-cap stocks that pay an average yield that more than doubles that of the ten-year Treasury bond.
