What is a Dividend Fund?
How Does a Dividend Fund Work?
A dividend fund seeks to provide investors with income from common and preferred shares of stock which yield dividends in cash and stock (in some cases) on a regularly-occurring basis. It is the opposite of a growth fund, which seeks to provide investors with long-term appreciation of capital.
Why Does a Dividend Fund Matter?
A dividend fund is a good choice for investors seeking regular income payments over appreciation. Investors should be aware that a poor market climate might result in certain companies' not paying dividends along with decreased fund value.
