Beaten-Down Dividend Stocks For 2014
The number of companies raising their dividend hit the highest levels in over 20 years, and dividend cuts were almost unheard of. And given that the dividend payout ratios of American stocks are scraping along at a historically low 32%, 2014 will almost certainly see income investors rewarded with more cash than ever. Today’s we’re going to take a look at some of my favorite dividend stocks that are trading at beaten-down prices...
