NEW VIDEO: Dividend Stocks – Lost Their Luster?

Over the course of the last few months, major stock indices like the S&P 500 have experienced strong gains. However, dividend stocks have not participated as much in the rally.

Investing involves risk including the potential loss of principal. No investment strategy, including diversification, can guarantee a profit or protect against loss. International investing involves additional risks including risks associated to foreign currency, limited liquidity, government regulation, and the possibility of substantial volatility due to adverse political, economic and other developments. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Indexes are unmanaged and cannot be invested in directly. Although the information has been gathered from sources believed to be reliable, it cannot be guaranteed. This presentation may contain forward looking statements and projections. There are no guarantees that these results will be achieved. It is our goal to help investors by identifying changing market conditions, however, investors should be aware that no investment advisor can accurately predict all of the changes that may occur in the economy or the stock market. In general, the bond market is volatile as prices rise when interest rates fall and vice versa. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to a substantial gain or loss. Bonds are also subject to other types of risks such as call, credit, default, liquidity, interest rate, and general market risks.

There are no guarantees that dividend-paying stocks will continue to pay dividends. Companies may reduce or eliminate the payment of dividends at any given time. In addition, dividend-paying stocks may not experience the same capital appreciation potential as non-dividend-paying stocks.
