Asian Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Thursday, May 26, 2011 | | 0 comments »

The search for yield is driving investors toward stocks that pay dividends—and some of the most generous yields are in Asia, where stock prices are among the world's cheapest. While most international dividend mutual funds are heavily allocated to North America and Europe, few have major exposure to Asia.

Dividend growth on the MSCI Asia Pacific Index increased at a compound annual rate of 7.23 percent, vs. 4.85 percent for the S&P 500 and 4.83 percent for the MSCI EAFE Index, which includes companies across Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, according to Bloomberg data. "That goes counter to people's basic understanding of what investing is about," Madsen says. "They've been taught if you want growth, you have to sacrifice yield. But we've seen companies [in Asia] deliver both."
