The average return of the dividend paying stocks in the S&P 500 Index outperformed the non dividend paying stocks in 2010. The dividend payers returned 18.75% versus 16.24% for the non payers in 2010. Given the attractive valuations and yields for many dividend paying stocks, especially compared to fixed income yields, outperformance of dividend paying equities has a high likely to continue in 2011.
