Devotion to Philosophy

money-growth

Dividend Assets Capital was founded on our confidence in the long-term power of accumulating and increasing dividends. It is this philosophy that drives our portfolio managers’ discipline regarding stock selection, and it is this philosophy that has earned us and, most importantly, our clients success.

The discipline to heed our investment philosophy consistently is one of DAC’s most characteristic traits — and one of the most rewarding. Our record of results over time, as well as our relative performance during adverse economic cycles, testifies to the wisdom of adhering to our principles. Short-term advantage is weighed against this record, and the record usually wins.

 Dividends as Indicators

What evidence supports our philosophy that consistent and growing dividends indicate other strengths about a company?

Since 1972 dividend growth stocks have outperformed the S&P 500 index by more than 250 percent, and all dividend-paying stocks – including high-yield stocks – by more than 130 percent.

Track Record:
The long-term record of dividend growth stocks speaks well to the overall stability and attractive nature of this asset class in many market environments.

A company’s ability to pay and increase dividends each year for a decade usually indicates other company strengths, as well. In many cases these company strengths are also reflected in price appreciation.

Investors who select a DAC Equity Strategy have typically considered the advantages of consistent dividend yield historically less volatile than price appreciation alone.
