The Dividend Report - November 2023

By Charles Payne CEO & Principal Analyst

Wall Street makes a big deal of dividend growers. Companies that raise their dividend payout each year are considered strong and healthy.

This is an excellent paper that suggests dividend hibernation can also be good news.

In this paper, we ask a different question: If dividend changes transmit information held by insiders, does a constant payout policy also provide information?
