Dividends for Depression Era Investing, Part 2


In Part 1 of this article, I had mentioned that I would give 5 more investments that meet our requirement, the requirement being you can only invest in companies that sell products people have to buy, even in a depression. These companies have to have managements who then take those profits and give them to us in the form of dividends. The yields from the dividends also have to pay our clients more than they could get from buying a 10-year Treasury bond. While I still plan to give another 5 companies, today I wanted to focus on some different kinds of dividend payers that litter our portfolio as well.

In May Lyxor introduced an ETF offering exposure to the dividends paid out from the Euro Stoxx 50 index’s constituent stocks, rather than exposure to the stock prices themselves.
