Rules to follow before investing high dividends stocks


Buying stocks with high dividends is very much important for a long term benefit. A dividend is a share of the profits that the company pays to its shareholders. Our goal is to gradually build a portfolio of stocks with high dividends with a good performance for us. So, I do not position to seek a gain in the short term but to generate regular dividends over the long term.

 Why should we focus on this particular investment strategy? The reason behind this strategy is to make passive income each year, a yield higher than 3% of life insurance ... and enjoy the low cost of current actions. Selection of companies is paramount! You have to follow certain conditions that I validate whether they are eligible:

 Check whether dividends were paid for several years without interruption:

This is the first and foremost criterion to verify. The payment of dividends is much important usually it is decided one year prior. Therefore ensure that they were paid on a regular basis for many years.

 Check for whether the dividends are growing:

 The initial dividend is of course interesting, but its growth is even more interesting for us. In the long term, an action that has a yield of 3%, which increases each year by 10%, will quickly defeat an action that has a fixed return of 6%. This is the power of growing dividends, like compound interest, every year they bring back more passive income.
  
Analyze the financial data of the company: 

 Some questions should be ask about financial data of recent years: Is the revenue increases ?,If the profits increase, does especially where they come from? To find out, it is important to calculate the net operating income is the prime indicator to consider. Operating income takes into account the income and expenses related to the operation of the business while taking into account net financial expenses, financial income and extraordinary.

 For Example: if a company has a negative operating result and has a net positive, then it should be understood that the latter is obtained by the sale of an asset, for example a machine (exceptional items) or financial income (financial). The interest is whether the company can generate long-term benefits of its exploitation (healthy society) rather than non-recurring activities (sale of assets, financial products ...). Finally, it is worth checking the debt of the company. Too high debt will mean that a significant portion of the profits will be used to repay creditors. The remaining profit will perhaps not sufficient to ensure the payment of dividends.

 The dividend payout ratio should not be too high:

 This ratio is calculated as follows, total dividends divided by net income. It should not be too high for the company retains a portion of the profits to invest. The remaining investment capacity will enable its development. Ideally this ratio should be less than 50%, however in practice if it remains below 100%, while investment capacity remains available.

 Choose future business and diversify its portfolio:

 The important part of this step is always to target the long term. What are the growth sectors? Health, food, energy ... All that we cannot do without and which constitutes basic needs. We should not put all your eggs in one basket so diversification in these areas is needed. Once all these steps validated you can be confident in your savings plan and collect your dividends every year! I would try to make a selection of companies in a future article soon.

 I hope these tips will serve you, tell me what you think of this approach in the comments.

At the end of the college days they enter into the world of work with full confidence and enthusiasm but without the right knowledge and right tool to manage their personal finance. Here are few tips to set right your personal finance in order. First and foremost one is making your budget. Make a budget for a year or a month and then break it up into smaller period of your convenience say weeks. Spare your good time for making an inventory of your expenses and revenues. If you are already having bank account, then open another bank account. The first account is for your financial reserve such as for receiving money from your parents, savings and contingency funds etc. Second one is for your expenses you can schedule your automatic payments of your regular payments. Keep the money in the second account to meet the minimum requirements of your expenses and don’t keep more.

Use the knowledge of others; be curious and attentive to know the success stories and experience of them. This knowledge will serve as a spring board that takes you near the success. Don’t hesitate to ask them directly the right information you needed for your success. The wealth is only attainable only through following strong financial principles. It requires commitment, willingness and persistence spend less than the earnings. But for the most of the people it is hard to follow. Spend less than you earn and invest that margin to generate alternative income and that marginal income will make your financial liabilities into financial independence. Here your financial education helps you to identify very smart and ideal investment that benefits us most. I assure you with rigor and perseverance you can achieve anything under the sky.

A Better Tips For Buying Gold Part.II

The purchase of the paper gold reflects the evolution of gold without the actual possession of it. It is the best alternative between the buying physical gold and buying gold stocks. This is the convenient way to buy and sell gold by bypassing the unnecessary taxation. The purchase is very simple and it is similar that of buying a share and you can buy in volumes. In addition in case of insolvency of the issuer, the investor is compensated in gold.

 Now you may ask the question what will be the trend of gold in coming months?

 Before making any investment we have to see the technical analysis of the particular product. Technical analysis is the study of graphs of financial products and various indicators derived in order to anticipate the market trend in the near future. In September 2011 the gold touched its record to the high of $1921. Before investing you have to judge the long term trend and short term trend. Sometimes the long term trend may bullish where as the short term trend may be neutral or bearish. Hence we have to plan according to the signal of our technical indicator. If the signal is not clear don’t venture into it and wait for the clear signal so that we can follow a foolproof risk management for a success.

Last but not the least the physical gold has the following advantages. It is the only asset which provide as a safe haven against both inflation and deflation. Unlike other investments it is not affected by the political and social events and it is the only reliable source when major economic crisis occurs. If you are a materialistic and pessimist then you go for the physical gold. If you are a conservative and optimistic then go for the gold securities with the self time varying from several months to several years according to the signals of your technical analysis and that of your plan. I hope I have explained perfectly the rules and it is quite simple, effective and applicable to every individual.

A Better Tips For Buying Gold Part.I

Today we are going to more about the gold. Commodities such as gold, oil or food grains are on the rise in the recent years. The oil price is soaring obviously because of its increasing demand and its scarcity which causes an imbalance between supply and demand. Because of demand raises the prices very quickly. The similar happens in gold also. On one hand the excessive indebtedness of countries and the Currency crisis raise the importance of yellow metal and on the other hand the demand chiefly come from its safe haven of quality and rarity and also the speculation which amplifies the rapid movement of the rare metal.

 Then how can we invest in gold? There are three ways to invest in gold. The first and easy one is purchase of physical gold that is the gold bars are the coins etc. The second one is buying gold stocks and the third one is buying gold in “paper”.

 Buying of physical gold is of centuries old and is the wide spread traditional one. In this type of investments you can buy a kilo in lot or of five hundred grams or of pellets of lower denomination. Now days you can buy the bullion directly from a specialty shop on the internet or the special counters in our banks. The greater disadvantage in this type of investments is safety. You have to store them somewhere in our home or in safety lockers at your home. Keeping the gold in the safety lockers in the banks are not safe. Let us discuss the reason in some other post later.

 The purchase of precious metal is also speculation on gold. The share prices of gold does not always follow the price of the open market. It fully depends on the health of the financial market of that day. In the international market the price of the gold has increased in price around 3.91% from the starting of the year. Usually the precious yellow metal fully depends on the financial market and tends to follow according to the ups and downs of the financial market.

Stock Trading Tools


Before venture into share trading you have to know the basics of technical analysis. There three basics in technical analysis. The first and for most one is Japanese candlesticks. The graph of the stock price gives us some information. It rises and falls in a zigzag manner. The main advantage of Japanese candle sticks is, it provide us a direct reading about the psychology of the traders. This can decrypt the price movement over a given unit of time and can infer, in which side the market is in favor of? i.e. in favor of buyer or the seller. To construct a candle stick we have to connect the opening price at the closing of a trading secession usually daily. What we call this as true body if the market is bullish the graph is white and if the trend is bearish the candle will be black. From the color variation we can distinguish whether the market is increasing or decreasing. The extremes of the market session are represented by the thin lines called shadows. Form the different forms of the candlestick we can judge the market trend.

 What is interesting is the combination of Japanese candlesticks. For example, assume three Japanese candlesticks in succession, therefore the ‘real body’ is becoming smaller and the shadow is longer and longer. This implies the buyers are losing hand to the sellers and the reversal is going to happen naturally.

 Apart from this, for a better trading we need to know the market namely, the areas on which course many buyers appear and where the sellers offload. The support level is the price level which is horizontal where by the market is sufficiently attractive to the current buyer develops.

Resistance is opposite of the support level of prices where the selling price mounts which leads to the decline in the price. The support and a parallel resistor forms a channel, that is why we say buy at support and sell at resistance. A support and a parallel resistor form a channel. It is for this reason that they say you have to buy support and sell resistance.



 Other one we should know in the stock market reading is Moving averages. A simple moving average is an arithmetic average of the last x periods. For example a fifty days moving average is equal to the arithmetic average of the last fifties taken daily. It is called moving because in each period the new one replaces the course of the old one and this process continues. When the price breaks to increase the level of the moving average we can say the short term trend is reversing towards the trend is increasing in the medium term. This trend is favorable to the buyer. Conversely, when the price breaks down the level of the moving average, we say the short term trend is reversing towards the trend towards lower medium term which is favorable to the seller.

Don’t Buy Gold!!!

    Why should we not buy gold? There are so many reasons not to buy gold. One of the first reasons is that gold does nothing, and it remains in the bank or in our locker. The only reason we are buying gold is that we are very sure that we can sell it to the higher price in future. In very recent article Warren Buffet said that the growing fear of loss and confidence in the market has motivated the practice of buying gold. Since the financial crisis of 2008, the gold prices have continued to climb. The lack of confidence in the global financial markets has let people to want something more concrete that cannot fail has placed gold into that place. As on June 2012 one kg of gold was about 41,525 Euros.

     Since the people hoped that future economic policies and the continued push for the progress will make gold as a profit buy. We don’t know when it will plunge. This is a risky game investing in gold. Globally the central banks of each of the county don’t want their people to invest in gold which openly displays how their people reject their paper money and hence they will act swiftly on day or the other. If the trend continues to be volatile then the governments will announce a very debilitating tax on this yellow metal to break the upward movement. If the gold market tend to monotonically increase then it will be good to the investments in stock markets. If the stock markets continue to fall then it will ensure a good appreciation in near future. Since the stock market is unpredictable when compared with the gold trend which followed a significant increase that lead to a bubble.

 Most of our readers aware that market is drive by the two namely fear and greed. Now we are in the middle of fear cycle. When it ends the cycle of greed starts immediately. If the gold bubble happens the gold price will fall and people will sell in bulk and they will forced to buy securities and therefore the stock’s price will increase. Hence it is ideal to buy gold as a small portion of our assets.

Your own strategy will not be best suited to your fellow trader, hence everyone have to be very comfortable with the technical analysis of the market to tailor his own strategy. The technical analysis helps you to find out the clear picture of the company, their organization, their financial activities and others, their strategies etc. The technical analysis further helps you to predict the future trend in stock price. This kind of approach leads you towards success and success alone. A good investor should have a long term vision but he must be aware of both short term and long term views since both of them have their own merits and de merits. Once you are accustomed with your own technique for successful trading then stick on it and make necessary adjustments now and then if needed and over the time you refine your strategy of trading and knowledge then Success will be at your door steps.
                                                Happy trading!!!
