Good find. Of course, now that the public has been told that dividend paying stocks are the place to be for peace of mind. But corporation must have woken-up to the fact thay they do not need to pay 4% dividends to compete with 0% treasuries -or- they are getting squeezed by rising input costs and no pricing power.
"Of course, now that the public has been told that dividend paying stocks are the place to be for peace of mind."
Yes indeed--the new spin on the old mantra--INVEST FOR THE LONG TERM!!!
Of course in hindsight, the most obvious bubbles have been the internet one, in the early daze of this century and the housing bubble. EVERYONE knew these were bubbles EXCEPT the same people who are pushing dividend stocks and TLT right now.
How many bubbles need to burst in an era of stagnation, before the few (haha) get a clue???
