Highest Paying Dividend Stocks in 2020
Published on Dec 28, 2020


Several metrics matter for investors looking for the best dividend stocks to buy and hold in 2020. For example, dividend stability reflects a long and steady track record of payouts, while dividend growth points to a company in sound financial health, working hard to make its stock more attractive to new and existing income investors. Also, a company with stable earnings is more likely to pay steady, and possibly rising dividends. The dividend payout ratio (dividend per share divided by earnings per share) can help the investor assess whether the dividend is sustainable, whereas a ratio greater than 100% may warn of a potential cut.
