There was a time when small-caps didn't offer any of the market's best dividend-paying stocks, but that's changing.
The number of issues in the S&P SmallCap 600 Index presently paying a dividend has jumped 10.2% since the end of 2013. Now some of the best dividend-paying stocks in the small-cap sector include a health REIT yielding 4.61%, a natural gas company yielding 3.92%, and a regional bank yielding 3.53%.
Thanks to regular, and potentially higher cash payouts, small cap investors can now get a steady stream of income along with growth prospects.
