It needs to be put to work, getting some return so that it will grow. Smart investors will turn to high-dividend paying stocks to get a stable and growing stream of income. Dividend investing - which provides an income beyond any gain in the share price - may be the investor´s best weapon. Dividends are safe, largely reliable, and maybe at the their cheapest levels in many years. While the best paying dividend stocks of recent years, such as financials, took a huge beating in 2008, opportunities will abound in 2010 and beyond - if you know where to look.
