If you were looking for income over the course of 2018, you certainly found it in spades. That’s because firms were awash in cash and they rewarded shareholders in a big way. Thanks to rising profits, a hefty dose of tax reform and continued economic growth, stocks handed out a record number of dividends throughout the year. Buyback activity surged as well, adding to already record amounts.
