Yet treating stocks as income-generators comes with a cost. "Rather than viewing dividend stocks as a way to capture extra yield, in the past we have stressed that dividend stocks should simply be viewed as a slightly less risky form of stock investing," Jim Bianco of Bianco Research wrote this week. "As such, we should expect dividend-paying stocks to outperform during bear markets and underperform during bull markets."
