2 Hated Dividend Stocks to Buy Now

DATE POSTED:September 19, 2020

This year has been the worst for dividend investors since the height of the Great Recession. Hundreds of companies have slashed or suspended their payouts due to the coronavirus pandemic's impact on their operations and financial results.
