Last week, I discussed dividend investing mainly to argue those that say dividend stocks are a bubble and that dividend investing was just a trend that would eventually fade away are dead wrong. My conclusion was that dividend investing will only grow bigger and more important. In my opinion, that is a good thing. It will encourage companies to be more disciplined with their cash which should be good both for the markets and for the general economy. Company executives generally have a lot of interest in how well their company’s stock performs and that is becoming even more true these days as companies increasingly switch to deferred compensation made through stock and options.
