The 'boring' crowd outperformed the market

“The greatest companies in lousy industries share certain characteristics. They are low-cost operators and penny-pinchers in the executive suite. They avoid going into debt. They reject the corporate caste system... Their workers are well paid and have a stake in the companies' future. They find niches, part of the market that bigger companies have overlooked. They grow fast - faster than many companies in fashionable fast-growth industries...

Pompous boardrooms, overblown executive salaries, demoralized rank & file, excessive indebtedness, and mediocre performance go hand in hand. This also works in reverse. Modest boardrooms, reasonable executive salaries, a motivated

These companies have robust balance sheets

To have a higher chance to uncover high-quality companies, Benjamin Graham, the pioneer of value investing, suggested choosing stocks with a current ratio of more than two and higher working capital than long-term debt.

These two metrics indicate whether the company can generate enough financial resources to support the business and reimburse both short-term and long-term lenders.

The current ratio is calculated by dividing total current assets by total current liabilities, while the working capital is the difference between total current assets and total current liabilities.

A valuable intangible asset in the mission-critical space

Durable competitive edges often come from intangible assets. A superior reputation is one type of them. A highly-reputed product or service is especially effective in guarding the business against competition when it comes to the mission-critical application with zero or little error tolerance.

Take a look at Intuitive Surgical Inc. (ISRG), the pioneer and leader in robotic-assisted surgery. The company is well-known for successfully transforming its first-mover advantage into a last-mover power thanks to its reputation earned from over 6 million procedures already performed and more than 18,000 peer-reviewed scientific publications regarding its da Vinci system. Thus, the barrier for

I love the combination of low debt with low payout ratios. The debt situation is one of the most important issues in corporate finance. It also expresses the ability to grow sales and earnings by enlarging the balance sheet with bank loans. Only a low leveraged corporation has potential to boost sales without taking new investors into the boat that dilute the current earnings per share. Today I would like to start an article series about low leveraged stocks from several sectors with currently small dividend payouts. I believe it’s good to see what companies have the biggest potential to

Dividend growth matters and has significant influence to your asset strategy. A higher dividend in the future also lifts your passive income from stock investing. It’s a good method to boost your total return. Out there are many studies, telling you that nearly half of the average return on the stock market is responsible to dividend payments. That’s a huge number in my view but what if we are trying to find the best dividend stocks, stocks that are better than the average? I think about companies that pay in ten years more dividends to you than you have ever

When I consider buying a stock, I always look at the fundamentals of a company. The current yields and P/Es are a first step but both are only two of hundreds criteria. To evaluate the future dividend growth you should definitely look at the debt situation and the payout ratio. Also important is the expected growth. Only a growing company can hike its dividends in the long-run without paying out capital assets and destroying shareholder values. Today I present dividend contenders with the highest dividend payout potential. If they succeed to hike further dividends over the next few years, they

As a dividend investor, I get rewarded any time that a stock I own pays me a dividend. I get particularly excited, when a stock I also regularly raises distributions. That being said, I thoroughly analyze financial statements, earnings estimates, major press releases, and try to gain a general feel of how a particular business is doing. In general, the story that makes me happy and willing to hold to my position, is when a company has managed to boost profitability over the past ten years and also [url=]has the potential[/url] to grow earnings into the next decade.

What is the primary reason you invest in dividend stocks? For me, it is a means to build a growing income that can be relied on during [b][url=]retirement[/url][/b]. One of the beauties of dividend investing is it provides you continuous feedback. As the years and decades go by you can see your earnings steadily grow as you invest your money in dividend stocks, and as an added bonus, great dividend stocks will increase their dividend payments each year. This week several companies provided their shareholders positive feedback with increased cash dividends: [b]ITC Holdings Corp.[/b] (ITC), through its subsidiaries, engages in
