It could eventually. That dividend is a function of the underlying stock price.
I think people are buying dividend stocks due to low yields in less risky investments. That's fine for now but I think will create a small bubble that will correct in a year or two when rates come up.
I don't see the French or rest of the EU stuff having a major impact on our market. Possible short term news pullback but nothing prolonged. If anything it will create a nice buying opportunity.
