Dividend Payers Outperforming Through April

For the first four months of the year, the dividend paying stocks in the S&P 500 Index are outperforming the non-dividend payers, 11.87% versus 10.17%, respectively. The payers have trailed the non-payers in the strong market advance over the last 12-months, however, investors seem to be rewarding the payers now.
