Dividend Payers versus Non Payers Performance: August 31, 2007

For the period ending August 31, 2007, the non dividend payers in the S&P 500 Index outperformed the payers for both the year to date time period and 12-month period. A large part of the dividend payer underperformance is attributable to the underperformance of financial holdings due to the subprime issues that impacted the market in August.
