  • Why these shares that DON'T pay dividends just could be the best investments right now
  • There are 275 dividend paying shares in the JSE today. They average a dividend pay-out of 3.88%.

And, once that money is paid out by a company the money is lost to it forever. But what if I told you there's a better option - a company that d... ››› more
