Many financial advisers and strategists have recently changed their advice to investors. Many people are no longer investing in high-growth investment vehicles, and instead see dividend-paying stocks as a better option than other investments such as Bitcoin. Bank of America, UBS, Goldman and other banks have all begun to shift their focus. Dividend-paying stocks are not known for their sharp price increases, and people are generally thought to have performed a little cold on the market last year. However, potential turmoil in the Middle East and upcoming elections may prompt investors to turn their attention to this investment.
