Mastering the Art of Dividend Investing
Andrew Baxter takes an in-depth look at the power of dividend investing. Despite sometimes being overlooked in favour of short-term market returns, a strategic approach to dividends can provide a robust tailwind to your portfolio's performance. Andrew provides valuable insights into the pros and cons of investing for passive income over outright growth through this conversation.
Furthermore, he debunks popular myths surrounding the concept of dividends as 'free income' and explains their essence as a share of a company's profits. He illuminates the factors influencing dividend amounts and how to assess which dividend stocks to invest in. He discusses two essential metrics: the payout ratio and yield perspective, emphasising the balance between yield and risk, alongside the impact of generous dividend payouts on long-term share price performance.
Touching upon the great Australian market, the host sheds light on its unique factors, such as the superannuation structure, top-up tax, the 45-day rule, and full franking credits. He also explores the differences in dividend yield in technology businesses between the Australian and US markets.
The episode highlights the strategies involved in using dividends tactically. This includes strategically timing investment rotation, hedging against capital loss, and potentially achieving a 4.7% yield even before beginning trading. Thus, whether you're a seasoned investor or a novice, this episode offers a wealth of knowledge around building a profitable dividend investment portfolio. Tune in and supercharge your understanding and approach to dividend trading.
