Yield seeking continues to be one of the favorite pastimes of investors, this year. Many have turned to the stock market to provide the income they need to support their retirement or other cash flow needs.
But as the market has powered higher, it has become harder to find quality dividend stocks. Many of the higher-yielding situations are stocks that have been declining because of poor fundamentals, which could lead to capital losses far in excess of the dividends paid out.
Now more than ever, investors need to seek quality opportunities that provide high levels of cash flow in the form of dividends.
Fortunately, we can use our stock-picking tool, Portfolio Grader, to find dividend stocks with high-quality fundamentals.
