Portfolio Details

The Worldwide Dividend Plus portfolio holds securities with above average dividend yields, strong dividend payment histories, sustainable free cash flow, and a track record of dividend increases. We also look to include companies with lower volatility than the market and a positive business outlook that could translate into price appreciation and dividend growth. The portfolio will typically hold 25 to 35 stocks. A stock can be sold or replaced if it hits its price target, its fundamentals change, or we identify a stronger candidate with more upside potential or the prospect of faster dividend growth.
