In trading on Monday, shares of WesternOne Equity Income Fund (WEQ.UN.CA) were yielding above the 8% mark based on its monthly dividend (annualized to $0.60), with the stock changing hands as low as $7.14 on the day. Dividends are particularly important for investors to consider, because historically speaking dividends have provided a considerable share of the stock market's total return.
