Investors seeking out growth stocks often discard dividends as unimportant, but they really shouldn’t. After all, there’s no greater sign of a company’s health than the regular, consistent payment of dividends. When the board of directors approves the payment of the quarterly dividend, it sends the unmistakable message that more cash is expected down the road.

Thus, a focus on dividends can help you improve the quality of your growth portfolio.

It’s exceptionally rare for a true growth stock to sport a high dividend yield.

Still, it’s nice getting paid something in cold, hard cash. If anything, the dividend allows you to realize a small portion of your gains along the way without having to sell your shares.
