We are excited to introduce the Dogs of Europe. This portfolio is designed to capture the high dividends, growth and dividend growth of European blue chip and mid sized growth stocks. The portfolio is currently paying over 6%. This dog portfolio has the rare potential to both grow principal and income over time while receiving a very solid dividend. Diversifying into European’s high dividend economy might be a superior way for America to participate in European investments, waiting for the economy to recover especially after the COVID 19 pandemic which caused the European markets to plummet with most of the world.
What is a “Dividend Dogs”
The core Dog strategy identifies higher dividend yield which is often caused from share price declines. The natural business and economic cycles (and now pandemic) cause significant ups and downs over time. The portfolio’s primary focus is on high quality aristocratic companies, which are stocks with an outstanding record of raising their dividends every year, over many years. The companies that demonstrate both the ability and history to increase the dividends over time often rebound faster after a time period of underperformance, as many investors seek and judge the companies focused on the income streams as the most important factor.
One might also observe that the companies that have increased the dividend each year, over many years, generally have stock prices that are less volatile. The previous underperformance due to economic cycles can cause price declines, often moving a company stock out of favor to a lower priced security. This lower priced investment also should significantly improve the dividend yield and the potential for upside gains.
At Durig this “Dogs” long-term strategic approach started with Dogs of the Dow and then Dogs of the S&P, which have demonstrated solid performances over time and that was even before we added dynamic weighting, quarterly rebalancing and no cost trading. The combination of successful proven decade old investment strategies with today’s low cost dynamic modern management investing in European companies is now what is called the Dogs of Europe.
