Putting dividend investing under the microscope

Dividend investing has long been a favourite strategy for Canadian investors who are attracted by the prospect of earning a large stream of income, especially in an era of declining interest rates.
However, the poor performance of dividend stocks during the pandemic-induced market decline and subsequent recovery highlights some of the risks associated with this strategy.

What’s behind the stock market rebound?

Since hitting lows in mid-March, most stock markets have regained about half of what they lost from their peak in mid-February. That’s led many people to wonder why the markets have come back so far, so fast, given the severity of the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • I chose to work with Cameron and PWL because I felt I would receive honest advice, fair and simple pricing, and an amazing product. Cameron doesn’t push investments: he educates me with what strategies work for my needs. Anyone looking for personalized, honest investment strategies needs to have a chat with Cameron – especially after one of his great talks!

  • We have been working with Graham from early 2009, and  joined him at PWL Capital in May 2010 . During this time Graham has acted as our financial adviser in the early years of our retirement, and has provided us with help and advice, giving  growth and security within our portfolio, in excess of our RRIF withdrawal requirements.

  • I’ve realized that I can’t be an expert in everything. I don’t have the time or patience to study up on finances and investments. Leave it to the pros. Cameron takes my pile of money, and makes it bigger. This is awesome.
