Foreword

Any collection of stocks is more clearly understood when subjected to yield-based (dog catcher) analysis, these Kiplinger world’s most reliable dividend stocks are perfect for the dogcatcher process. Here is the June 25 data for 90 dividend paying stocks in the Kiplinger-documented collection. Suspended now are 9 dearly departed former dividend payers felled by their board of directors reaction to Covid19 stresses.

Now departed are: BAE Systems (OTCPK:BAESY); Bunzl (OTCPK:BZLFY); Essilorluxottica (OTCPK:ESLOY); Fresenius Medical Care AG & Co KGaA (FMS); Groupe Bruxelles Lambert (OTCPK:GBLBF); L’Oreal (OTCPK:LRLCY); Micro Focus International (MFGP); Flutter Entertainment PLC (OTCPK:PDYPY); Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (OTCPK:SKVKY); WPP PLC (WPP).

The post-Ides-of-March plunge in the stock market took an 11% toll on the 99 international aristocrats. The Scandinavian bank was the first of the ten to suspend dividend payouts. However the drop in prices of 19 of the top 90 (listed by yield) most reliable dividend payers in the world has made the possibility of owning productive dividend shares from this collection more viable for first-time investors.

The following 19 currently live up to the ideal of having their annual dividends from a $1K investment exceed their single share price: RDEIY; ENGGY; ENB; XOM; PRU; CNQ; T; BTI; BNS; MEOH; BCE; IMBBY; CMPGY; BEN; LEG; WBA; ASBFY; SU; WTBDY.

The Dividend Dogs Rule

Stocks earned the “dog” moniker by exhibiting three traits: (1) paying reliable, repeating dividends, (2) their prices fell to where (3) yield (dividend/price) grew higher than their peers. Thus, the highest yielding stocks in any collection became known as “dogs.” More precisely, these are, in fact, best called, “underdogs”.

The distinction between five low-priced dividend dogs and the general field of ten reflected Michael B. O’Higgins’ “basic method” for beating the Dow. The scale of projected gains based on analyst targets added a unique element of “market sentiment” gauging upside potential. It provided a here-and-now equivalent of waiting a year to find out what might happen in the market. Caution is advised, since analysts are historically only 20% to 80% accurate on the direction of change and just 0% to 20% accurate on the degree of change.

The net gain/loss estimates above did not factor in any foreign or domestic tax problems resulting from distributions. Consult your tax advisor regarding the source and consequences of “dividends” from any investment.
