YCharts White Paper: Our Tools, Your Clients -- Screening to Find Long-Term Dividend Growth
Regardless of how you feel about U.S. monetary policy since the financial crisis, the upshot for investors and savers has been paltry returns from bonds and other interest-rate products, sending ever-larger numbers of people looking for dividend-paying stocks.
But far too many investors focus solely on current dividend yield, leaving themselves vulnerable to volatile stock prices and to limited growth in future dividend income. A better goal, many believe, is to look for high-quality stocks that, while paying a decent dividend now, have a record of strong dividend growth that, should it continue, will bring you rising income in the years to come.
That, of course, is a tall order, and that’s where the YCharts Stock Screener comes in. It’s one of the many tools on what we call the Financial Terminal of the Web that allows you to put your investment beliefs into informed action.
