With interest rates at very low levels, investors are looking for ways to increase the return from their investments, and dividends from stocks are one thing they are looking at to achieve this.
Keep in mind, though, while a stock may offer a high yield simply because it is undervalued, an overly high dividend may be an indication of a company that is distressed, or has little to no growth potential.
Always research the fundamentals of any company whose stock you intend to purchase.
