Allianz Recommends European Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, February 08, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Neil Dwane, manager of the Allianz RCM European Equity Income fund, said in the current market environment of negative real US and German bond yields, investors should consider dividend stocks. Mr Dwane said that due to the price decline in equity markets, the average dividend yield of European stocks had risen to 4.2 per cent.

In comparison US dividend yields amount to only about 2.2 per cent and the average in Asia Pacific was 3.5 per cent. He said: “We believe that an equity dividend strategy that focuses on high-dividend companies should offer investors an attractive coupon, especially in today’s low interest rate environment. It is all about stock selection as it is not just the level of yield, but also the sustainability of that yield.”
