Document Thumbnail: The Lead - Receiving Dividends


The Lead - "Receiving Dividends"

  • Why is the shortest month of the year, February, the biggest month for dividend declarations? 
  • Perhaps it is because February is right before the spring, when it is the most popular time for annual meetings where company managements sit before their owners and provide an update on last year’s results.
  • We discuss how a high dividend yield does not necessarily connotate financial health.
  • We believe finding companies that can pay a dividend yield above 'the market' while growing it consistently and funding that increase through organic growth rather than putting their balance sheet at risk is an attractive combination in creating high conviction portfolios for clients.

The Lead - "Know What You Own"

  • Over the past 20 years, we’ve said "defense wins championships” and thus far in 2022, it’s paid to play good defense. 
  • We discuss how dividend growers have lower volatility over time as measured by standard deviation. 
  • We note as of the end of last quarter, not only was the Sterling Capital Equity Income strategy growing dividends at a double-digit rate on a portfolio basis, but also on an individual basis. Over 70% of our strategy holdings had reduced their shares outstanding over the past year.

The Lead - "Optimal Yield"

  • This month, Bank of America's (BofA’s) Global Research team provided long term data on the relative outperformance of Quintile 2 (20% increments) dividend yielding stocks within the Russell 1000. 
  • Not only were their annualized returns the best over time relative to other levels of dividend yielders, but they also exhibited the best downside capture characteristics. 
  • Over time, 'the market' appears to reward companies that pay above market and secure dividends, but not stretched dividend yields. 
  • Sterling Capital’s Equity Income portfolio yield is positioned firmly within BofA’s Quintile 2, providing another positive data point that, in our view, the strategy is well positioned to deliver attractive total returns for our clients over time.
