Common New Dividend Investor Mistake (Don't Be Fooled)
A common new dividend investor and investing mistake I see most often is an investor buying dividend stocks based on high dividend yield stated as a percentage.
Many times a high dividend yield can be a signal of fundamental problems within the company. If a share price of a stock drops significantly, this causes the stated dividend yield as a percentage to increase which can cause "shiny object syndrome".
Even if the share price has remained relatively flat, the company might be implementing leveraging techniques to pay a higher-than-average dividend yield. This is most commonly seen with high yield dividend exchange traded funds or "ETFs". These funds pay a large yield during good times in the market but become the financial equivalent to carrying Polio when a market correction presents itself.
In this video I illustrate the difference between a good and bad dividend stock along with a few other helpful tips for new dividend investors seeking passive income.
