The High-Yield Dividend payers will continue to distribute dividends and can provide steady capital appreciation at the same time in the current low yield environment.

Curated by Motif Investing


Some companies are better at returning cash to shareholders than others. In today's near-zero interest rate environment, these companies separate themselves from the pack by offering an attractive combination of a composite yield of 4.6% and a 10-year track record of not cutting dividend payments.

What's more, companies with the confidence and discipline to return large amounts of cash to shareholders have often been in demand from income and value investors. Little wonder, given that between 1930 and 2012, dividends have contributed 42% percent of the S&P 500's total return.

How did we choose these stocks?

We identified US-listed stocks and American Depository Receipts of companies that are engaged in activities relevant to this watchlist's theme. We then filtered out companies that have a share price of less than $1.00 or a market capitalization less than $100 million, and excluded illiquid stocks by screening companies for liquidity i.e. average bid-ask spreads, dollar volume traded etc. Finally the proprietary Motif Optimization Engine determined the constituent stocks.
