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.

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.
