Why you should invest in dividend paying stocks

Investing in high dividend yield stocks is a great way to create a steady flow of income. It can not only help investors enhance their returns when markets are favourable but can also provide decent returns when markets are unfavourable thereby reducing the risk of the portfolio considerably.

However, note that before picking such stocks, one should check the valuation as well as the dividend-paying track record of the company.

Make it a point to go through the company's financial statements and only invest in companies with sound financials.
