    Will the dividend grow ?

    by doctorj2222 Aug 27, 2014 1:46 PM

    It should increase (but not dramatically) if the bull market of the last 6 years continues because the concentration is in medium and small-cap stocks that normally don't pay as great a div as big blue chips. If the market declines, this fund will cushion the fall because of its diversity allowing it to purchase non-stock, fixed-income securities. But it doesn't have a large enough concentration in this area to counteract a stock market swoon with a rise in bond prices. It's primarily a defensive, stabilizing fund.

    Remember that a higher dividend can be misleading if the higher percentage comes because of a drop in stock prices. For the investor who simply wants current income it could be seen as a plus. But for the investor who's reinvesting dividends for long-term growth, the higher percentage dividend in the context of a bear market and declining stock prices could signal a loss in principal that makes the dividend percentage irrelevant if not insignificant.
