Asset Allocation (31/05/2021)
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.

Despite rising consumer and producer prices worldwide central banks in the US and the euro area were relaxed and maintained their expansionary monetary policies in May.

Investors anticipate the first Fed rate hike in December 2022. In addition, most economic indicators rose including purchasing managers' indices in the US, China and the euro area. In this market environment the price of the DJE - Dividende & Substanz remained almost stable with a slight minus of 0.13%. Its benchmark index, the MSCI World on a euro basis, recorded a moderate minus in height of -0.30%. In May, a good two-thirds of the sectors of the global equity market developed positively. The highest price gains were recorded by the sectors credit institutions, oil & gas and financial services sectors, followed by the sectors consumer cyclical goods and basic materials. The sectors retail, travel & leisure, technology and media sectors suffered losses. The fund benefited from its investments into the sectors healthcare, industry and consumer staples.
