Topic: Opportunities and Pitfalls in Dividend Investing
Speaker: Charles Carlson, CFA, CEO, Horizon Investment Services
Dividend investing has become extremely popular in recent years as a low-interest-rate environment has made dividend-paying stocks more attractive. The problem is that dividend investing has become a “crowded trade” of sorts, with several areas and stocks in the dividend space becoming overvalued. The era of simply buying the highest-yielding stock is behind us. Dividend investors will need to be much more discerning if they are to maximize the opportunities in dividend stocks. Carlson will discuss both the opportunities and pitfalls in dividend investing and focus on the best approach for selecting dividend stocks.
