I really don't understand this. IMO, if you're holding for the long term, dividends are BAD. Dividends are an immediate taxable event, and worse, they're taxable as regular income! If the company in question holds the money (and thus retains the value in the share price), you're not taxed until you sell, and the tax rate is lower.Why on earth would anybody want the dividends?If the stock in question is in a non-taxable account, that dividend would be desireable. Money in hand beats potential gains in this case.
