Dividends4Life: Promising Dividends in Foreign Wireless

Promising Dividends in Foreign Wireless

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, March 01, 2011 | | 0 comments »

Dividend payers deserve a berth in any long-term stock portfolio. But seemingly attractive dividend yields are not always as fetching as they may appear. Let's see which companies in the non-U.S. wireless industry offer the most promising dividends. As my colleague Matt Koppenheffer has noted: "Between 2000 and 2009, the average dividend-adjusted return on stocks with market caps above $5 billion and a trailing yield of 2.5% or better was a whopping 114%. Compare that to a 19% drop for the S&P 500."

As I see it, Turkcell and China Mobile give you the best of everything for a dividend stock. They sport yields far exceeding 3%, strong dividend growth rates, and reasonable payout ratios. They all offer some solid income now and a good chance of strong dividend growth in the future. Indeed, their dividend growth rates are so strong that they can't be maintained for a long time. But since their payout ratios aren't too high, it's reasonable to expect significant near-term growth.
