Simon Property Group's business is getting back on track, but it will really start to show what it can do next year.
When the economy grows, most companies generate the capital needed to expand their operations and some even have enough to pay dividends to shareholders. Growth and capital dry up, hindering some companies' ability to continue paying dividends. Strong companies prove their dividend staying power by paying out during both good times and bad.
Simon Property (SPG) closed at $99.70 in the latest trading session, marking a +0.16% move from the prior day.
