Why would anyone put money into treasuries right now?
When you can get dividends of 4% or more on so many good stocks. Even some of the beat up miners are paying that.Some oil and natural gas stocks pay even more, and there's still room for them to go up.
Because the dividend is not all that matters. and today was a prime example as many a great dividend payer got crushed. INTC, drop from high print yesterday, over 4 percent, more than a years worth of dividends gone in no time flat.
