Investing in Dividend Yield Stocks

.

One of the most traditional form of investment, which involves identifying such stocks that are likely to give good dividends. The dividends get paid no matter what direction the stocks move and can provide a higher yield on investment in any market.

Hence, even if the market remains volatile, going ahead, an investor can still expect to get a decent return on investment. Such stocks can be identified by studying the dividend history, cash position, and macro economic condition.

Some of the stocks which have had a past record of good dividends are :

Clearly financial services/ interest sensitivities/ banking are outperforming in the hopes of reforms and expected rate cuts. Early 2013 more noise will emerge around the budget session and reforms. Overall, equity markets look poised for a steady journey northwards.

Most retail investors are skeptical of the up move in the markets over the past few months.  And are keen to move to debt products or Gold. Are they making a mistake, only time can tell. As of now, though, it is time to enjoy the joy ride upwards…
