Four reasons dividends won't fall off 'fiscal cliff'

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/11/30/us-column-wasik-di...

To sumarize:

Interest rates available elsewhere are scant. Regardless of tax rates, dividend stocks almost always out perform non-dividend players.

The best dividend stocks increase their dividend payments over time.

Dividends provide a cushion. Dividend paying stocks are better to own in a low-yield, slow-growth environment.

Total return matters.
