If orders dry up from one customer, so too do revenues and profits. Implementing a dividend initiates an implicit contract with shareholders, a contract that says that you can depend on this dividend through thick and thin. True, this contract has been a bit frayed by the dividend cuts and omissions seen since late 2007. Historically, however, companies have been extremely reluctant to cut or omit a dividend. Therefore, if a firm is not confident in the stability and dependability of its profit stream, it is unlikely to initiate a dividend.

The travails of dividend stocks since 2007 bear this out. For the 12 months that ended on September 30, 2009, there were 926 negative dividend actions taken by corporations, according to Standard & Poor’s. That’s out of the approximately 7,000 publicly traded companies that report dividend information to S&P. Still, there is a way to tilt the odds in your favor. And while I’m no Einstein, I believe he would appreciate the simplicity of my methodology. I call it my Big, Safe, Dividend (BSD) Formula.

Capture the Dividend—Not! At this point you may be thinking to yourself: If all I want is the dividend, why can’t I just buy the stock just prior to the ex-dividend date and sell on the ex-dividend date?
