Dividend Analysis for the Growth Stock Investor
The growth stock investing approach taught by BetterInvesting and used in popular stock analysis software focuses on capital appreciation and low P/E valuations as the keys to successful stock investing. But dividends can add to your total returns, and many investors appreciate the additional safety or income provided by dividend yield.
