Safe Dividend Shares

Dividend paying stocks are currently in high demand. This is due to the low yields available on alternative, low risk investments. The return of many fully franked, high yielding shares is almost twice the return on currently available term deposits.

But just how safe are these high yielding shares. A good start it to look at the history of annual dividend payments. A steady pattern of gradually increasing dividends without any large dividend falls or missed payments over a long period is ideally what we are looking for.

To be able to pay reliable dividends – year in, year out, companies must maintain or even increase profitability and maintain a reasonable, but not excessive payout ratio.
