Company Dividend History
There are companies that are known for paying cash dividends and have a history of successful distributions.
But that list is shrinking, and there is an increasing number of companies cutting back on cash dividends and stock dividends. The volatility of the US Markets is having a major impact on company and stock performance as well as the global economic, political, and social conditions. More pressures are being placed on companies to perform and meet or exceed shareholder expectations because everyone enjoys a “good return on investment.” The bottom line is that the balancing act of keeping shareholders happy with good returns, keeping enough capital on hand to run the business, and meet the ever-growing challenges of daily operations, a toll is being taken on cash dividends.
