(By Kelley Wright) 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 Timely Ten list represents represents our top ten current recommendation; 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.
Our four-plus decades of research and experience, however, leads us to believe that these stocks, purchased at current Undervalued levels, are well positioned for both growth of capital and income.
The Timely Ten consists of undervalued stocks that generally have a S&P Dividend & Earnings Quality rating of A- or better, exemplary long-term dividend growth, and a P/E ratio of 15 or less.
These positions also have a payout ratio of 50% or less, debt of 50% or less and technical characteristics on the daily and weekly charts that suggests the potential for imminent capital appreciation.
