Are dividend payersstill your best bet now?
 
 SUSIE GHARIB, NIGHTLY BUSINESS REPORT ANCHOR: Rising tensions. NorthKorea`s dictator ratchets up the rhetoric. What does he want, how big of an economic threat is he really? And what`s the way out?MATHISEN: Play ball. Baseball is back, but you probably can`t guesswhat`s helping boost the value of major league franchises big time.All that and more on NIGHTLY BUSINESS REPORT.Well, good evening, everyone. And welcome.You know, Susie, maybe it was the manufacturing data today. Maybe itwas just time, but either way stocks took a bit of a day off.GHARIB: On this April fool`s. And it was no joke, stocks starts thefirst day of a new month on a down note.Investors turned cautious in reaction to the disappointing economicreport. A key manufacturing gauge came in weaker than expected. TheInstitute for Supply Management`s March index fell to 51.3 percent. That`sthe lowest level since December and well below estimates. Any readingabove 50 is a sign that American factories are expanding.Wall Street history shows that April is traditionally the best month
 
of the year for equities but no sign of that today. The Dow fell 5.5 points. The NASDAQ off 28. The S&P fell 7 points.MATHISEN: And as Susie just mentioned, April is traditionally the best month of the year for stocks, averaging a nearly 3 percent gain over the past 20 years, and that`s a good sign for investors. Since the Dow iscoming off its best first quarter in 15 years, adding roughly 11 percent.So what usually happens after a strong first quarter? Well, since1950, there have been 12 other times that the Dow was up more than 8 percent in the first quarter and eight of those times, the average added atleast 1 percent in the ensuing or second quarter, and five of those times,the Dow rose more than 4 percent.Of course, history is rarely a perfect guide to the future and whatyou want to know now is what might make you some money in the secondquarter and beyond.Well, one strategy that has paid dividends in recent years is toinvest in companies that pay dividends. But our market guest tonight saysthat approach is so 2011.He`s Seth Masters, chief investment officer at Bernstein Global WealthManagement.
