6 Highly Liquid Dividend Stocks With Strong Corporate Governance
By Kapitall:A company’s owners (or shareholders) have very different goals than company management. Specifically, a company’s owners seek to maximize the value of the company, while company management often wishes to maximize personal wealth. Corporate governance policies mitigate these differences and protect shareholder interests, but some companies have stronger policies than others. Companies with stronger corporate governance policies are viewed as safer investments to shareholders over the long term.
