Bull Market - Happy Four Year Anniversary - Federated Investors

Posted by Thomas Wilson on 3/11/13 8:54 am

Federated Investors’ Senior Portfolio Manager, Philip Orlando, goes in depth with the latest economic and corporate news affecting the stock market. "Over the past four years, the financial markets have shrugged off a mixed, but improving, economic picture, while largely ignoring the ongoing fiscal-policy dysfunction in Washington. Focusing instead on the resilience of the U.S. economy and a powerful rebound in corporate profits, stock investors have driven the Dow Jones Industrial Average to an all-time record high on the fourth anniversary of the Great Recession’s market’s trough, while the other major equity indices are not far off."

Strategic Value Dividend November Commentary - Federated Investors

Posted by Michael O'Connor on 12/27/12 8:12 am

Federated Investors’ November commentary gives their take on recent and upcoming events in the market and economy, as well as a recap of the Strategic Value Dividend portfolio’s performance. "Through the month of November, the Strategic Value Dividend portfolio proceeded on its way to achieving its objectives of providing a high-level of current income, long-term capital appreciation driven by dividend growth and lower downside risk. The portfolio finished with a gross dividend yield that measured 4.96% in line with its 5.0% target. This was significantly higher than the 2.28% yield of the broad market S&P 500 Index, as well as the 4.00% yield of the Dow Jones Select Dividend Index that aims to reflect the domestic dividend-paying universe."

Fear + Uncertainty = Opportunity - Federated Investors

Posted by Michael O'Connor on 11/19/12 1:26 pm

Linda Duessel, senior equity-income market strategist at Federated Investors, is out with her latest piece on dividends and the current fear among investors. "With so much fear and uncertainty in the markets, Duessel sees an alternative for skittish equity investors seeking to dip their toes back in the water: a dividend-oriented investing strategy, which has the potential to generate more predictable and better returns over the long term than a strategy geared solely at price appreciation."

Strategic Dividend September Commentary - Federated Investors

Posted by Gabriel F. Burczyk on 10/5/12 9:42 am

In their September commentary for the Strategic Value Dividend portfolio, Federated Investors summarizes what they see for the final quarter in 2012. "As the fourth quarter of 2012 begins and the broad market focuses on issues such as the upcoming election, the persisting debt crisis in Europe, etc., the Strategic Value Dividend portfolio will continue to stay above the fray and remain rooted in its unwavering dedication to provide its investors with a high and rising dividend cash stream. By investing in companies that have both the ability and the inclination to pay and increase their dividends, the Strategic Value Dividend portfolio also seeks to position itself well to achieve superior long-term total returns for its investors, since history has shown dividend yield and dividend growth to be the primary drivers of historical total returns in equities. The portfolio is further complemented by the natural lower downside risk features of its high quality, high yielding holdings. All of these factors may make the Strategic Value Dividend portfolio a viable strategy for a wide array of investors, and demonstrate the benefits of investing in high quality, well-established companies that pay large and rising dividends to their investors."

Why Talk of a Secular Bull Isn't Just a Bunch of Bull - Federated Investors

Posted by Michael O'Connor on 7/5/12 9:53 am

"This is how beat up the American stock investor's psyche is: Even though the Standard & Poor's 500 had nearly doubled from its March 2009 lows by year-end 2011, and even though the major equity indices had their best first quarter in decades the first three months of 2012, money kept flowing into bond and out of equity mutual funds. But there is a silver lining. History shows secular bull markets in stocks tend to start when things look their worst-when the individual equity investor has given up. This is among the reasons why Steve Auth, Federated's chief investment officer for equities, believes we are in the early stages of a secular bull, an out-of-consensus view that's gaining traction on Wall Street."

Posted by Michael O'Connor on 5/14/12 1:41 pm

Phil Orlando, Chief Market Strategist at Federated Investors, reviews the latest economic reports and answers the question, 'should you sell in May and go away?' "We continue to believe that the economic weakness we're currently experiencing is both temporary and consistent with our long-standing soft-patch forecast, and we fully expect that a healthy 5-10% correction from slightly frothy spring peaks will reverse back to the upside later this year."

Presidential Cycles and Other Election Year Theories - Federated Investors

Posted by Gabriel F. Burczyk on 4/13/12 9:50 am

Federated Investors' latest report discusses stock market and dividend returns based on the outcome of the Presidential election. "History suggests that investors could benefit from paying attention to the presidential election cycle. In modern times, the fourth year of a president's term has tended to be a positive one for stocks, as the incumbent does all the he can to remain in office. But what happens if the president comes from one party, and Congress is headed by another? What if the race is close? What if it’s a landslide? And does it matter if the winner is a Republican or a Democrat? All of these outcomes can have potential implications for the economy-and the markets."
