U.S. dividend stocks look interesting again

 “It may be time to consider self-gifting dividends to your portfolio,” Lindsey Bell, chief investment strategist for Ally Invest Securities LLC, wrote Friday in a blog post. Bell cited the potential for dividend-paying U.S. stocks to regain strength as the economy rebounds from this year’s recession. She looked at the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index, consisting of companies that have increased dividends for at least 25 straight years. Through Friday, the index trailed the S&P 500 for the year by 8.4 percentage points. That would be the biggest annual shortfall since 1999, when the gap was 27 points.
