    Dividends Do Matter

    Dividends show the health of a company in most situations and a good indicator of managment's faith in the company's prospects. Valero recently has been showing some faith in its prospects:

    Dividends (annualized basis) History for Valero:

    2008: 57 cents a share
    60 cents a share
    20 cents a share (Great Recession Impact to Valero)
    60 cents a share
    70 cents a share
    2013: 80 cents a share

    So we have now come off the bottom quite a bit from 20 cents a share to 80 cents a share and hopefully more to come. As a side note and not suggesting a correlation, Valero now pays a higher dividend than 2008 when the shares hit as high as $71 a share.

    Good luck.
