A profit yield of 2% or 3% may not appear to be overwhelmingly amazing, considering that the share trading system has returned near to 10% over the long haul, yet reinvesting these profits go into an organization can be the contrast between essentially resigning, and resigning all alone terms.

Cash dividends fill various needs for financial specialists with need for a steady income. As a matter of first importance, they talk about the consistency of an organization and its plan of action to pay solid dividends.

An organization paying a profit all the time is a good sign for Wall Street and financial specialists to expect good dividends in the future.

    I like your posts but you should use a linear stock chart rather than a misleading logarithmic one.

      I wouldn't call the logarithmic scale "misleading" at all. IMO, it's a useful way to present longterm price growth.

  2. I believe it's better to see a logarithmic scale. The chart looks more normalized and adjusted by growth.

    1. Yes, PG is a great multinational stock but it does not mean that they are only good because they are big and they have well known brands. In this case it may be true but I know many companies where it is not the case. Which stocks do you like too? Please let us know and discuss.
      Thank you for your contribution.
