Kristi Lenahan: I’m InvestorPlace’s Small-Cap Stock Expert. I deliver investment advice across all asset classes. And in my experience, small-cap stocks are often overlooked.
In “Opportunities in Small-Cap Stocks,” I discuss the benefits of investing in small-cap companies. You’ll learn how to spot the best small-cap opportunities and how to build an active investment portfolio using small-cap strategies. I also break down the best dividend-paying small-cap stocks to own. My article “Dividend Stock Darlings” will give you a list of high-yielding small-cap stocks to consider that will generate steady cash flow for you over the long term.
This step-by-step approach applies to every stock. So if you’re like most Americans, you have little tolerance for risk. Dividend stocks can help your portfolio in any amount — even if it’s just a single payment each quarter. You’ll want to make sure you capture the dividend yield. And you’ll want to track the dividend’s growth rates to ensure you are actually increasing your income from the same dollar amount of stock.
These are simply recommendations. But anyone with a long-term investment horizon is a dividend investor. After all, dividends are a guaranteed way to increase your income.
