These Dividend Stocks Will Add Value To Your Portfolio
These are on my list of the best dividend stocks which have generously contributed to my portfolio income over the past couple of months. Dividends can be underrated but they form a large part of investment returns, playing an important role in compounding returns in the long run. I’ve made a list of other value-adding dividend-paying stocks for you to consider for your investment portfolio...

7 Tech Stocks That Pay Dividends
It’s a misnomer to think that the technology sector can’t — or doesn’t — have a few dividend stocks to choose from, though. It does, with several of these names reshaping their business models to drive the recurring revenue that lends itself to dividend payouts. Software-as-a-Service and access to cloud-based storage are a couple of platforms that are billed on a monthly or quarterly basis. To that end, here’s a run-down of seven tech stocks that pay a dividend worth collecting. In all seven cases, the payout is pretty well protected, and apt to grow. Best of all, these stocks still offer strong growth prospects that the tech sector is so well known for. From smallest to largest dividend...

You don’t have to worry about executives looting the business when you know their wealth depends on the long-term health of the company...

This 7.5% Yielder Is an Insider Favorite
So here’s the situation: Management knows a lot more about their business than outside analysts, but the information they reveal may not always be accurate. Is there a way to get some insight on what they really think about their company? Well, you can always check whether they put their money where their mouth is. In other words, investors should pay attention to insider ownership...

Since most people are already with a carrier, the new company will have to spend a lot of money to convince them to switch.
