Asset Allocation (28/04/2023)
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.
- Attractive level of global dividend stocks.
- Experienced fund manager with an approach based on fundamental, monetary and market analysis (FMM) that has proven itself since 1974.
- 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.
- Dividends are a voluntary payment by companies and therefore not guaranteed. They can rise, fall or be cancelled altogether.
- Share prices can fluctuate relatively strongly due to market, currency and individual value factors.
- Previously proven investment approach does not guarantee future investment success.
- Currency risks due to a high foreign share in the portfolio.
Compared to the turbulent previous month (bank quake), April was quiet. At most, the mood on the markets was weighed down by the expectation of further interest rate hikes by the central banks, but not too much either: The majority of market participants expected the US Federal Reserve and the ECB to raise their key interest rates by 25 basis points each at their meetings at the beginning of May in view of the continued high inflation. In addition, there were concerns that the US government deficit could exceed the statutory debt ceiling if Republicans and Democrats could not agree to raise the ceiling. This discussion weighed on the US dollar. In this market environment, the DJE - Dividende & Substanz rose by 0.62%. Its benchmark index, the MSCI World, fell by -0.02%. In the global equity markets, insurance, travel & leisure, consumer staples (with recently also stronger pricing power) and healthcare performed well. Commodities, automobiles, consumer cyclicals and industrials, on the other hand, underperformed. The fund benefited primarily from its exposure to the financials, healthcare and consumer staples sectors. In contrast, the technology and consumer discretionary sectors weighed on fund performance. At the individual stock level, the strongest results came from the German reinsurer Hannover Re and the pharmaceutical companies Eli Lilly (USA) and Novo Nordisk (Denmark). Performance was weighed down by the German holding MYT Netherlands Parent (Mytheresa), the German semiconductor manufacturer Infineon and the US agricultural machinery group Deere & Co. The fund's management increased its exposure to the telecom, utilities, oil & gas, financial services and healthcare sectors over the month as the reporting season turned out better than expected and there is a chance of a soft landing of the US economy (i.e. no recession) given the declining inflation data in the US and a robust labour market. The adjustments increased the equity allocation from 87.40% to 94.95%. Correspondingly, liquidity decreased from 12.60% to 5.05%.
