High-dividend shares are a source of recurring income, but their importance is often underestimated. In the long term, dividends are often the strongest contributor to share performance, because reinvested dividends benefit from the compound interest effect. For this reason, shares with above-average dividend yields are favoured in DJE - Dividende & Substanz. However, the decisive factor is not the amount, but above all a stable, ideally rising dividend payment. A low payout ratio helps here. Analyses have shown that high-dividend stocks can be more robust in difficult market phases than low-dividend stocks, as a dividend can act as a buffer to cushion temporary price losses. After all, good substance and balance sheet quality as well as a high dividend yield with an earnings situation that is as secure as possible increase the chance of sustained investment success. The stock selection aims at an above-average dividend yield relative to the market. However, the fund may also include stocks that do not currently pay a dividend.
- 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.
Most stock markets developed negatively in December. Falling energy prices caused inflation rates to decline on both sides of the Atlantic. The noticeable easing of inflation enabled the central banks to soften somewhat their very aggressive monetary policy in December with several interest rate hikes of 75 basis points. Both the ECB and the Fed raised key rates by "only" 50 basis points. The abrupt end of the zero-Covid strategy of China surprised the markets. Independent estimations now suggest that there are around one million new infections and over 5,000 deaths per day. As the Chinese production and demand have meanwhile been impacted concerns are raising that global supply chains could again come under stress.
