Top Dividend Stocks to Maximize Passive Income
A dividend is an amount of money paid regularly by a company to its shareholders. Dividend stocks are popular among investors because they are typically well-regarded companies with a strong track record of paying reliable dividends. However, caution should still be exercised as many high dividend stocks have unique business structures that may be risky. Factors to consider include positive dividend growth metrics and the dividend payout ratio (the percent of profits paid to shareholders).
