Revisiting our Dividend views for the ASX200 With 50% of returns from the local share market coming from dividends over the last 20 years, it's not difficult to understand why Australian investors are correctly focused on dividends. The unprecedented low interest environment now clearly appears to have a few more years' duration, as European economies threaten to drag the rest of the world back into recession. Australia's problems are far more linked to the slowing China economy, leading to Iron Ore falling 60% since February 2011. Hence, with money in the bank earning basically negative real interest, Australian equities paying solid fully franked dividends should remain solidly in favour. My approach is very simple, identify the stocks you want to buy and then importantly, the levels you are happy to buy them - the core value we can add at Market Matters is identifying levels to buy quality stocks. I have added two stocks to my previous favourite 3 that have performed excellently this month, however with few sectors rivalling the growth, our GDP there are likely no surprises. (VIEW LINK)
