Which Other Stock Can Match This Dividend Record?
Walk the talk. This adage has renewed utility today. Stock brokers and analysts abound, but no one guarantees dividends. Your payout is the only sure part about stock market advice. Even a mutual fund will make you sign away all accountability. You get a share only if the fund manager succeeds in stock picks. Why not do your own stock investing if you have to take the risks?
You will love that Bush stimulus check even if you plan to vote democrat. It is the same with any dividend. Admire or despise executives with exorbitant salaries, it is fine as long as there is a payout in your favor. Stock appreciation comes in handy when you are in distress and need a heap of cash fast. Otherwise, a dividend makes your quarter. Those checks will be missed sorely as house-hold ends get tougher to meet.
