Dividend Yield Is The Most Important Factor

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, January 04, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Dividend yield is the most important factor to use when evaluating investment opportunities, says London-based portfolio manager Job Curtis. Stocks paying steady dividends tend to fall less than the others during tough economic times.

The 10 selected stocks from diversified sectors like energy, financials, medical equipment and consumer goods have dividend yields ranging from 2% to 14% and one-year dividend growth of 6% to 70%. Based on average estimates of analysts surveyed by Bloomberg, these stocks have upside of 10% to 56%. Among analysts covering the stocks, 74% on average recommend a buy.
