1.  Dividend stock portfolios have a long-term history of outperforming the S&P 500 (see Dividend Stock Investing Outperformance History
    tab) with less risk/volatility (see Dividend Stock Investing Lower Risk History tab).

    2. Often overlooked, dividends have been a significant and important source of the S&P 500's historical total return (see Dividend Stock
    Investing Importance of Dividends tab).

    3.  CEO's rarely like to announce a dividend cut.  Because of this, insiders usually conduct careful analysis in the dividend decision that
    often confirms a sustainable earnings and cash flow situation.  A dividend is also a sign that management is interested in the shareholder
    and not overly occupied in unproductive empire building.

    4. Dividends and the growth of dividends provide positive compounding benefits for total return investors, and important income and
    income growth potential for income investors.

    5.  Timberline believes these positive qualities will persist over time.
    A high dividend yield can be an indicator of financial distress and a dividend is not always a true indicator of a good investment opportunity.  Security
    selection and security analysis remain important parts of the strategy.  Past performance of dividend stocks may not be indicative of future results.
