Dividends play a big role for investors, whether they know it or not. In this week’s episode of the Mullooly Asset Show, Tom explains the main reason why dividends are important.
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
- When it comes to being bullish or bearish about the markets, there’s always a thousand different reasons to be bearish. Michael outlines a handful of things investors could fear, and why it’s harder to make a case to be bullish.
