grupo guitarlumber: Why now is the perfect time to buy these 3 super income stocks SSE advertising Image: SSE. Fair Use. By Peter Stephens - Monday, 8 August, 2016 | More on: AZNSSEULVR 0 inShare With interest rates cut to 0.25%, dividends are likely to become increasingly important for vast swathes of investors. It would therefore be of little surprise for higher yielding shares to see their prices increase. Greater demand from investors can lead to a compression in their yields and as such, now could be a great time to buy these three income stocks, not only for their yields, but also for their capital gain potential. SSE SSE’s (LSE: SSE) yield of 5.8% is among the highest in the FTSE 100 and dividend growth is very much on the horizon. SSE is forecast to increase dividends per share by 2.3% next year and its goal remains to deliver a rise in shareholder payouts that at least matches inflation over the medium term. While inflation is near zero, this may not hold a great deal of appeal to investors. But with sterling weakening and likely to weaken further, inflation could rise as import costs increase. In this scenario SSE’s growing dividend could be a major ally. SSE also offers good value for money. It trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 13.2, which indicates that there’s upward rerating potential on offer at a time when a number of utility companies have P/E ratios of over 20. Unilever Although Unilever’s (LSE: ULVR) yield of 2.9% is lower than the FTSE 100’s yield of 3.6%, it nevertheless has huge potential as an income stock. That’s because its payout ratio stands at around two-thirds of profit, which indicates that there’s scope for Unilever to raise dividends at a faster rate than profit growth over the medium-to-long term. Certainly, it needs to invest heavily in marketing and potentially in acquisitions, but its relative stability and resilient business model mean that a greater proportion of profit could realistically be paid out to its shareholders in the form of dividends. Furthermore, Unilever has strong growth potential in emerging markets. Around 60% of its sales are generated from the developing world and with 75% of Chinese urban dwellers expected to earn between $9,000 and $34,000 by 2022, the growth potential of consumer goods within the world’s second largest economy is significant. Unilever is well-placed to benefit from this and its dividends could rise rapidly as a result. AstraZeneca AstraZeneca’s (LSE: AZN) acquisition strategy is expected to cause its bottom line to move from negative to positive growth over the medium term. This has the potential to positively catalyse a dividend that has been stagnant in the last five years as the company has struggled to come to terms with the loss of patents on key blockbuster drugs. Still, AstraZeneca yields over 4% right now and this makes it a better income option than the wider index’s yield of 3.6%. And with AstraZeneca’s dividends being covered 1.4 times by profit, they’re sustainable even if profit comes under further pressure over the near term. Plus, with AstraZeneca having a beta of 0.7, its share price should be less volatile than the wider index, which may appeal to income-seeking investors while the FTSE 100’s outlook is uncertain. But is this a better income buy? Despite this, there's another stock that could be an even better buy. In fact it's been named as A Top Income Share From The Motley Fool.

essentialinvestor: Emerging market growth was a main factor driving the share price until recently, now we have EM currencies battered by a new wave of selling which may provide strong headwinds imv. Will £24 a share hold?.

bigbertie: Essential (post 167) because I post only the Friday night closing prices my graphs show long-term trends. I highlight golden cross and dead cross situations based on 10 and 40 week moving averages, and find these are often good recommendations. But not always....I'm having a look through my graphs to see if I can better quantify the situations in which they are unreliable. For ULVR the last perfect signal was a golden cross on Friday 22nd June 2012. The price rose from there (2,093p) to a plateau at around 2,750p in Spring 2013, although nervous investors might have chickened out at a small plateau around 2,250p. In Sept 2013 there was almost a dead cross (share price 2,457p) but not quite (the 40 week ma rose 2p in the week) so I would hesitate to say it was confirming a downtrend but the graph has been falling a bit which was why I said it was "gloomy". This is one of the problems with golden and dead crosses - they confirm the start of some trends but don't give the best moment to quit! The graph doesn't look like it's going to give another clear signal for a while but I'm holding off because of the concerns I listed in 167. Cheers

housemartin2: Hi Jonwig - not sure about leaving 2500 behind for good. With such a large (and growing) prportion of EM (whatever that defines as ) business, I expect share price to follow changes in EM perceptions more closely and become increasingly volatile. There is still quite a bit of risk here to IMO in the shape of a reinvigorated P&G. (which I have mentioned before I know). Good job margins have increased. We may need them !

bigbertie: hmmm, I think these results are not too bad but I think the outlook for the share price is poor.... why? well (1) pre tax profit is up but would have been down if you eliminate gains on disposals (I think that's right, I'll check) (2) the price is historically high relative to earnings and only sustainable if there is a strong growth story, whereas there are doubts over emerging markets' economies (3) emerging markets will not be a pushover - some will get protectionist and some will get competitive. China will probably go on growing but they will soon start making soap and hairspray (4) P&G has been a bit quiet for a few years, but with a change of CEO they will be hitting back hard (5) my graph of weekly prices (usually a good predictor of long term trends, subject to a few caveats) is looking gloomy Just my worries - not a recommendation - good luck to all

housemartin2: Looks like RB not as affected, though less in EM's. Perhaps ULVR effect short term ?? Point about resurgent P&G in post 416 well made but a bad 9m results could start a decline in share price which would present buying ops down the line ( as I am long term holder and ULVR its all a bit tidal to me )

metier9: Pfft, at £20 i would double my holding, at £19 i would triple my holding, at £18 i would put half my portfolio in ULVR. There is a problem though! If it got to £19/18 area i would suspect there is more to worry about than ULVR share price.

jonwig: Hi, Housemartin. Yes, I wish I'd been in at 1300p! But in the current market I'm happy with my purchase. The main rationale on buybacks has to be that they are a free ride: ULVR's cost of dividend is about 3.5%, whereas its cost of capital is a lot less than that: a short-term USD bond was priced at 0.85% (nearer 0.7% after tax relief) last summer. (OK, longer-term issue costs more.) That's nothing to do with spare cash, just efficient balance sheeting. However, the links I posted earlier suggested ULVR could be debt-free in a few years. In that case, the options are various! How much is the performance of P&G important to the ULVR share price? On the one hand, P&G success means sector success; on the other, P&G weakness is either an opportunity or sector weakness. I'm not sure how to read this!
