    Do stocks that pay a dividend have more value than a stock does not pay a dividend?
  2. Generally not.
    At least not in the long run.

    Why the company can't find where to reinvest their earnings?
    Since they have plateaued.

    Still, there are plenty of opportunities in developing countries, Why not reinvest there?
    Why not reinvest making a company that finances their own products/services?
  3. Most bluechips pay dividends, altough for "politically correct" reasons.

    Actually, divs outperform the market in the long run.
  5. Howdy Doodi-----Do you have the same graphic with "non-dividend paying, non-S&P/500 stocks"? :D
  6. Actually, they outperform the market because they are bluechips.

    Most bluechips pay dividends, most small companies don't.
