Falling dividends make clear the folly of saving in the stock market to fund pensions
Shell’s current equity dividend yield is a bit above 3%.
Shell’s current MTB bond yield is apparently 0.25%. Or maybe that’s just Markets Insider being stupid and it is in fact around the coupon of 1.25%.
That much greater return from bonds, rather than equities, shows why people should not save in equities for their pensions. Sop dies indeed say one of the tre professori.
