Dividends are the most common method that a company can use to return capital to shareholders. Dividend growth investors often place significant emphasis on dividend yields and dividend growth as a result.

Naturally, dividend growth investors are attracted to high-quality stocks such as the Dividend Aristocrats, an exclusive group of stocks in the S&P 500 Index with 25+ consecutive years of dividend increases.

However, there are additional ways for companies to create value for shareholders. In addition to dividends, share repurchases are also an important part of a healthy capital return program. Debt reduction should also be welcomed by investors.
