Why Invest In A Dividend Strategy?

An Academic Approach

  • Dividend income combined with earnings and dividend growth have accounted for approximately 95% of S&P 500’s 9.19% total return from 1910 to 2020.
  • Dividends alone have accounted for approximately 45% of stock market returns.
  • High-yielding portfolios provide competitive total return with downside protection, allowing you piece of mind without FOMO.
  • High dividend-yields provide companies with significant incentive to protect and expand cashflows.
  • Our approach has a long-term track record of above-market returns and income generation.

Translating Research Insights Into Consistent Alpha and Income

  • Markets are inefficient in the short term; fear and greed create opportunities for the long-term investor.
  • Share prices often fluctuate above/below their intrinsic value, providing ample selling and buying opportunities over the long term.
  • The companies in this strategy feature high-yielding stocks that are growing their earnings, dividends and cashflows and trade at a discount to our estimate of their worth.
  • We invest only if our proprietary research suggests a stock is undervalued, using quantitative methods developed by our founder in the 1990s.
