MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- "Do Not Dump Those Dividends" will be the message from Sam Stovall, chief equity strategist at S&P Capital IQ Equity Research, in a free webinar available to BetterInvesting members and guests on March 19 from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Sam Stovall, the author of The Seven Rules of Wall Street: Crash-Tested Investment Strategies That Beat the Market, is a regular on financial news channels such as CNN Money and FoxBusiness. More about Stovall can be found here.
During the second quarter of 2013, after the U.S. equity markets flew into a "taper tantrum," dividend-rich stock prices took it on the chin, Stovall explains. As a result, many income-oriented investors began to wonder whether they should bail out of their high-yielding holdings.
"When 40 percent of the S&P 500's total return since 1926 has come from reinvested dividends, I think investors should think twice before selling," Stovall says. "If you are a believer in reversion to the mean, consider that S&P 500 constituents currently pay out only 36 percent of earnings, versus their long-term average of 54 percent."
To learn more about how searching for high yields, low volatility and above-average long-term earnings per share growth aren't mutually exclusive goals, sign up now for this special BetterInvesting webinar in which Stovall will identify some higher yielding stocks that sport track records of raising both earnings and dividends in each of the past 10 years.
