Our primary purpose is to assist investors in growing their capital and
income base from which to derive cash for their current and future
To that end we believe that high-quality stocks purchased
at historically low-price-to-high-yield offers the best potential for
downside protection and upside appreciation.
Our current Timely Ten list is our reasoned expectation based on our
methodology and experience for what we believe will perform best over
the next five years.
Do we believe that all 10 will go up simultaneously or immediately? Of course not.
four-plus decades of research and experience, however, leads us to
believe that these stocks, purchased at historically ndervalued levels,
are well positioned for both growth of capital and income.
Whether you are looking to build a portfolio from scratch, are partially
invested and looking to add new positions, or fully invested and in
need of some affirmation and hand holding, The Timely Ten represents our
top ten current recommendations.
The Timely Ten consists of
undervalued stocks that generally have a S&P Dividend & Earnings
Quality rating of A- or better, and have a history of exemplary
long-term dividend growth.

15 or less, a payout ratio of 50% or less (75% for Utilities), debt of
50% or less (75% for Utilities), and technical characteristics on the
daily and weekly charts that suggests the potential for imminent capital
