I don’t know about your shares, but my portfolio was thumped during this month’s market sell-off.
The drubbing prompted me to consider whether I should remain invested in my racy growth stocks and contrarian recovery plays — or seek out some alternative opportunities instead.
My latest SharePad trawling has therefore centred on dividends — which for many of us are the gold standard of investing dependability.
I mean, employ the right directors at the right business, and shareholders can sit back, relax and enjoy consistent payout advances…
…regardless of what happens to the stock market, the economy and just about everything else!
