Are dividend stocks a good investment?

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Edward Sheldon, CFA | Monday, 20th January, 2020 See all posts by Edward Sheldon, CFA In the current low-interest-rate environment, dividend stocks are getting a lot of attention. That’s not really surprising when you consider that many dividend-paying stocks offer yields of 5% or more – much higher than the interest rates on savings account. Royal Dutch Shell shares, for example, offer a yield of around 6.2%, which is attractive when savings accounts are only paying 1% or so. Are dividend stocks a good investment though? Let’s take a look at some research.Dividend stock researchNow, I’d love to be able to show you some research in relation to the long-term performance of UK dividend stocks, but research studies involving UK dividend payers are few and far between. So let’s look at research into US dividend stocks. One of the best studies in this regard is by independent firm Ned Davis Research. In this study, analysts examined the performance of dividend stocks in the S&P 500 index between 31 January 1972 and 31 December 2018. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Strong returns  What the analysts found is that, over this period, dividend stocks as a whole delivered total returns (dividends and capital appreciation) of 8.78% per year. That’s certainly a healthy return. By contrast, the equally-weighted S&P 500 index generated an annualised return of 7.3%, while non-dividend-paying stocks delivered annualised returns of 2.4%. This suggests that dividend stocks are indeed good long-term investments and could potentially be better ones than non-dividend-paying stocks. Dividend growers = the best returnsWhat’s really interesting is that a specific subset of dividend stocks delivered even higher returns. Indeed, the study found that the dividend stocks that performed the best over this period were those that had grown their dividends or started dividends. These companies delivered annualised returns of 9.62%. Moreover, they generated higher returns with a lower standard deviation (a key measure of risk).  By comparison, dividend cutters and eliminators underperformed quite substantially, with annualised returns of -0.79% and a higher level of risk.Source: Santa Barbara Asset Management and Ned Davis ResearchWhat this suggests is that if your goal is high total returns, and not simply a high yield today (i.e. you’re investing for the long term), the best strategy when investing in dividend stocks is to focus on companies that are consistently increasing their payouts.Focus on dividend growthThis theory is well supported by looking at the performance of the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats (S&P 500 companies that have increased their dividend payouts for at least 25 consecutive years) over the last decade.According to the latest factsheet, for the 10-year period ending 31 December 2019, the Dividend Aristocrats generated total returns of 14.75% per year versus 13.56% for the S&P 500 index. Impressively, they generated this outperformance with a lower standard deviation than the index.In conclusion, research suggests that dividend stocks are good long-term investments. However, if your goal is to generate high total returns, it could be a smart idea to focus on companies that consistently increase their dividend payouts as these companies tend to generate the strongest risk-adjusted returns over time.

The charity has worked with procurement consultants Aria Insite since December 2004 to improve the way it manages its procurement budget, which in 2005/6 was £130 million. Following a detailed spend analysis across all of its UK laboratories, Cancer Research UK and Aria identified the range of items that would be most suited to an online auction. Aria then brought in Vendigital, a specialist procurement company with particular expertise in online auctions, to manage the full auction process from end to end. Advertisement The first online auction to source office supplies delivered 30% savings to the charity. The auction to source IT hardware including desktops and laptops saved Cancer Research UK a further 20%, and another 33% was saved via the auction for laboratory consumables and equipment such as chemicals, plastics and personal protection equipment. Through the latter auction, the charity also managed to reduce its number of suppliers from over 200 to fewer than six. Belinda Turner, Procurement Director at Cancer Research UK said: “Initially, there was some scepticism that online auctions could deliver such huge savings. Now with three projects under our belts, we are convinced that this approach is extremely valuable.“We are now developing a more holistic approach across all our procurement – this is not about centralising procurement, rather about sharing best practice with our individual buyers and helping them to buy more cost effectively.” Peter Garnett, Managing Director at Aria Insite, said: “The auctions are only successful because Vendigital follows rigorous processes before, during and after the actual events. This process involves supplier headhunting, managing supplier participation, running the auction event, final assessments of suppliers with the best prices through to ensuring the successful implementation with the chosen suppliers.”last_img read more

Credit: British Columbia Ministry of TransportA new JPL-led study finds that almost one-fifth of the global warming that has occurred in the past 150 years has been missed by historical records due to quirks in how global temperatures were recorded. The study explains why projections of future climate based solely on historical records estimate lower rates of warming than predictions from climate models.The study applied the quirks in the historical records to climate model output and then performed the same calculations on both the models and the observations to make the first true apples-to-apples comparison of warming rates. With this modification, the models and observations largely agree on expected near-term global warming. The results were published in the journal Nature Climate Change. Mark Richardson of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is the lead author.The Arctic is warming faster than the rest of Earth, but there are fewer historic temperature readings from there than from lower latitudes because it is so inaccessible. A data set with fewer Arctic temperature measurements naturally shows less warming than a climate model that fully represents the Arctic.Because it isn’t possible to add more measurements from the past, the researchers instead set up the climate models to mimic the limited coverage in the historical records.The new study also accounted for two other issues. First, the historical data mix air and water temperatures, whereas model results refer to air temperatures only. This quirk also skews the historical record toward the cool side, because water warms less than air. The final issue is that there was considerably more Arctic sea ice when temperature records began in the 1860s, and early observers recorded air temperatures over nearby land areas for the sea-ice-covered regions. As the ice melted, later observers switched to water temperatures instead. That also pushed down the reported temperature change.Scientists have known about these quirks for some time, but this is the first study to calculate their impact. “They’re quite small on their own, but they add up in the same direction,” Richardson said. “We were surprised that they added up to such a big effect.”These quirks hide around 19 percent of global air-temperature warming since the 1860s. That’s enough that calculations generated from historical records alone were cooler than about 90 percent of the results from the climate models that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) uses for its authoritative assessment reports. In the apples-to-apples comparison, the historical temperature calculation was close to the middle of the range of calculations from the IPCC’s suite of models.Any research that compares modeled and observed long-term temperature records could suffer from the same problems, Richardson said. “Researchers should be clear about how they use temperature records, to make sure that comparisons are fair. It had seemed like real-world data hinted that future global warming would be a bit less than models said. This mostly disappears in a fair comparison.”NASA uses the vantage point of space to increase our understanding of our home planet, improve lives and safeguard our future. NASA develops new ways to observe and study Earth’s interconnected natural systems with long-term data records. The agency freely shares this unique knowledge and works with institutions around the world to gain new insights into how our planet is changing.For more information about NASA’s Earth science activities, visit http://www.nasa.gov/earth Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Science and Technology Historical Records Miss a Fifth of Global Warming: JPL By CAROL RASMUSSEN Published on Thursday, July 21, 2016 | 3:05 pm Your email address will not be published.
