Stocks for Dividend Lovers

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, December 13, 2011 | | 0 comments »

McLean & Partners, which manages portfolios for high-net-worth individuals, focuses on global companies with a market capitalization of at least $1 billion and a track record of increasing dividends. It invests in nondividend stocks, too, but dividend growers account for about 70% of the equity component of the portfolios it manages.

"We prefer companies that can pay a decent dividend now and preferably grow it," said Tyler Simms, an investment associate with the Calgary-based firm. "Long term, you’ve seen that style of investing proving time and time again to outperform." Generally speaking, the lower the payout ratio, the safer the dividend. A high dividend growth rate is also a plus, as is a low P/E, although these are just guidelines and each stock should be judged on its own merits.
