There are many bubble alike stocks that rise because of speculation and popularity. Expectations and assumptions usually lead many investors to buy extremely expensive shares that have negative EPS. Dividend became a secondary factor in evaluating the future of the stock.
Only a few companies pay dividends but their stocks do not soar crazily due to news covered from financial magazines. There is a utility stock Fortis (NYSE: FTS) which has dividends increasing through 46 years – almost half-century. However, FTS does not skyrocket like Amazon or Tesla.
For a fresh starter, getting this stock for stable returns could be the wisest decision to manage risks. If extra cash appears buying penny stock becomes the best alternative rather than investing in cryptocurrency or precious metals.
