Most Dividend Paying Stocks in India

When people invest in stock markets, they intend to make capital gains. But, we often miss out that there is also an option to earn passive income through dividends.

Investing in dividend-paying stocks gives dual benefits to investors i.e., probable capital gains and regular income via dividends. Hence, companies with high dividend payout ratios are attractive for investment.

However, it is not easy to spot good dividend-paying stocks. One has to undertake a careful study of the market and its participants to spot a dividend paymaster.

While paying dividends generates regular income for investors, paying high dividends means cutting down on the profit that could be invested back in the business. This might slow down the growth of the company.

This might harm the capital appreciation of a stock. Hence, investor expectations may not be fulfilled.

That is why you shouldn't just look at dividend ratios alone to pick stocks.
