The particular importance of dividend payments is often underestimated. In the long run, dividends offer the highest contribution to the overall performance of an equity investment as reinvested dividends achieve a considerable compound interest-effect. Therefore the DJE- Dividende & Substanz prefers equities with high yields. Anyway, the possibility of obtaining the highest possible yield is not decisively, but the achievement of sustainable and in the best case increasing yields (see graphic). This is supported by a low distribution quota. Empirical analyses proofed especially in a difficult market environment that high-yield titles offer much more stability than titles with a low dividend, as the dividend is able to soften temporarily losses. The calculation is easy and clear: good substance, excellent balance structure as well as a high dividend return in combination with the highest possible secured profit situation increases the chances to achieve a sustainable investment success.
