Each Wednesday, Chief Income Strategist Marc Lichtenfeld’s Safety Net looks at a stock to determine the safety of its dividend and the likelihood that it’ll be paid or even raised. After all, it’s just as important to generate a healthy amount of income as it is to ensure that income stream doesn’t turn into a trickle.
This column truly provides your portfolio with a “safety net,” helping to catch big losses before they happen.
To predict dividend cuts and raises with stunning accuracy, Marc uses his proprietary tool, SafetyNet Pro. With it, you can determine the dividend safety rating of nearly 1,000 stocks.
To ensure everything is up to date, he routinely runs each one through a proprietary mix of key variables. Marc’s system assesses cash flow levels, payout ratios and a slew of other quantitative data to figure out how secure a company’s dividend is.
Access to SafetyNet Pro is reserved exclusively for subscribers of Marc’s newsletter, The Oxford Income Letter. To learn more about SafetyNet Pro and The Oxford Income Letter, click here now.
