Asset Allocation (29/04/2022)
In a world (almost) without interest rates, high-dividend shares represent a source of steady income. Nevertheless, the importance of dividend payments is underestimated. In the long term, dividends provide the highest contribution to the overall performance of an equity investment, because reinvested dividends generate a considerable compound interest effect. Therefore, shares with high yields are preferred in DJE - Dividende & Substanz. However, it is not the highest dividend yield that is decisive here, but above all a sustained and ideally rising dividend payment. A low payout ratio helps here. Empirical analyses have shown that high-dividend stocks can be a more stable form of investment in difficult market phases than low-dividend stocks, since a dividend can act as a buffer to cushion temporary price losses. The calculation is simple and obvious: good substance, excellent balance sheet quality as well as a high dividend yield with an earnings situation that is as secure as possible increase the chance of achieving sustained investment success.
- Experienced fund manager with an approach based on fundamental, monetary and market analysis (FMM) that has proven itself since 1974.
- Attractive level of global dividend stocks.
- Participation in the growth opportunities of global equity markets independent of benchmark index specifications.
- Dividends offer regular income potential in addition to possible share price gains and can thus mitigate possible price losses.
- Share prices can fluctuate relatively strongly due to market, currency and individual value factors.
- Dividends are a voluntary payment by companies and therefore not guaranteed. They can rise, fall or be cancelled altogether.
- Currency risks due to a high foreign share in the portfolio.
- Previously proven investment approach does not guarantee future investment success.
April was a difficult month for the stock markets. A whole range of risk factors weighed on the stock markets: the war in Ukraine and fears of further escalation weighed on sentiment and increased investor pessimism. Energy prices remained at a high level, but did not rise much further, mainly because demand from China's manufacturing industry declined significantly. In addition the lockdown in Shanghai caused a traffic jam in the busiest container port, which further strained the already tight global supply chains. Therefore price pressure on energy, many commodities and food remained high. Inflation rose to 8.5% in the US (in March) and 7.5% in the euro area compared to the same month last year, increasing pressure on central banks to raise key interest rates. In this market environment the price of the DJE - Dividende & Substanz corrected -1.64%. Its benchmark index, the MSCI World on a euro basis, lost -3.42%. On the international stock markets about one third of the sectors performed positively in April. The sectors food & beverages and personal care & pharmaceuticals recorded the highest gains. The sectors energy, utilities and healthcare also achieved positive results. The other sectors, however, suffered losses in April. The sectors media, technology, automotive, financial services and retail recorded the strongest price declines. The fund benefited in April from the two defensive sectors of food & beverages (good company figures) and healthcare (not cyclical) as well as utilities (high dividend yields). At the individual stock level the strongest value contributions came from the pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk (Denmark), the telecommunications company Deutsche Telekom (Germany) and the food company Nestlé (Switzerland). On the other hand, the performance of the fund was negatively impacted by the results of the sectors technology (disappointing quarterly figures), basic materials (profit-taking; economic concerns weigh) and financial institutions (weak economy increases loan defaults; more provisions; weak investment banking, hardly any IPOs). Particularly disappointing on the equity side performed the US companies Amazon (online mail order), Alphabet (internet services; parent company of Google) and BlackRock (asset management). During the month the fund management reduced the weighting of the sectors technology, basic materials and telecommunications in particular. On the other hand, the health care sector was increased. Regionally US and positionsof the Asia-Pacific region were reduced and the Swiss allocation was increased. The fund's equity investments were reduced from 93.43% to 89.94%. Liquidity amounted to 10.06% after 6.57%.
