Stocks That Pay Dividends

Dividend Paying Stocks Reduce Risk in Playing European Turnaround

Excerpted from the July 2012 Issue

July 27, 2012

What do you do when you can’t solve a problem? One approach is to give up, declare victory and go home. This appears to be what European leaders did at their summit meeting in late June.
