The features of dividend-yielding equities are obvious with regard to the sustained income aspect, but more importantly, given the current market environment, they also possess risk management features that could mute the effects of volatility. "The potential benefits have been well-documented--dividends have been a large contributor to long-term stock returns over time, and with interest rates poised to remain low equity dividends are likely to be an important part of that story," wrote Victory Capital portfolio manager Dan Banaszak. After all, dividend yield is just a percentage—a function of stock price—so a company encountering trouble and a stock declining in price might still sport a very attractive yield.
