The Allure of Dividends in Investing

Investors flock to National Health Investors, Inc. (Symbol: NHI) as it breaks the 6% yield territory, with its quarterly dividend translating to an annualized $3.6 per share. The allure of dividends lies in their historical significance, constituting a substantial portion of the stock market’s total return. For instance, imagine acquiring shares of the iShares Russell 3000 ETF (IWV) back on 5/31/2000 at $78.27 per share. Fast forward 12 years to 5/31/2012, the value per share dipped slightly to $77.79. However, factoring in the $10.77 dividend per share over the same period, the return jumps to an impressive 13.15%. Even with reinvested dividends, the average annual total return barely reaches 1.0%. Therefore, a yield surpassing 6% presents an enticing prospect, provided it remains sustainable. With NHI a part of the Russell 3000, it holds a prestigious position among the largest 3000 U.S. companies.
