Dividends

  • Why these shares that DON'T pay dividends just could be the best investments right now
  • There are 275 dividend paying shares in the JSE today. They average a dividend pay-out of 3.88%.

And, once that money is paid out by a company the money is lost to it forever. But what if I told you there's a better option - a company that d... ››› more

  • Should you invest in a company that pays ‘special dividends'?
  • As you may know, many shares pay dividends. A dividend is a portion of a company's earnings that it pays to its shareholders. Usually this payment happens once or twice a year. And because they offer this added benefit of a regular income stream, income-seekers love dividend-paying stocks. But occasionally, companies surprise investors by electing to pay a ‘special dividend'. Special... ››› more

  • The ‘Ultimate Paycheque' for a rich retirement
  • Imagine investing R100,000 in a company and receiving over R600,000 in dividends alone… Or investing the same amount and getting back nearly R200,000 just in dividends… Now that's serious income that could guarantee a comfortable retirement.

  • Why the most common argument against dividends is wrong!
  • The most common argument you hear from investors who aren't interested in dividends is that the company should be able to find something better to do with its cash than give it back to shareholders. They say the funds should be used to grow the business either by investing in the business itself or by acquiring new ones. These are valid points but here's where they are wrong… Recomm... ››› more

  • Why you should invest in these two stocks in 2019 if you want to double your income!
  • From mid-2002 to mid-2017, the JSE All Share returned a cumulative 420%. Doesn't sound too bad, right? But if you had re-invested dividends, the return would be over 700% Just think about that for a second… That's an extra 300% growth thanks to simply reinvesting the dividends. To put it another way, R10,000 back in mid-2002 would be worth over R50,000 invested in the JSE. Bu... ››› more

  • Dividends and discounts make this share a great buy
  • Following on the theme of buying shares at a discount, today's company is trading at a discount to its net asset value as well as paying over 6.5% in dividends. You will get paid to patiently wait for the company's share price to return to a premium to its net asset value (NAV). The biggest reason for the discount is that it failed to comply with credit regulations in the past. These issues... ››› more
