- It's been a great start for undervalued blue-chips in 2021. And analysts think we could be at the start of one of the greatest value rallies in history.
- Take JPMorgan, which thinks value stocks could rally 25%-50%, driven by the strongest economic growth in 20-50 years and the end of the pandemic.
- Dividend Kings’ portfolios are smashing their benchmarks and the broader market thanks to their focus on superior fundamentals – performance likely to continue for the rest of the year and.
- We continue to improve our tools and overall service, expanding our team to 16 members, and counting. In 2022 and beyond, we'll be launching a super-premium service unlike anything available in the world.
- Our price goes up $50 per year on March 1. But if you join now, you can lock in our current $449 price forever and get a free permanent upgrade to DK Pro as well. Don't miss out on the chance to maximize safe income and market-smashing returns to achieve the rich retirement you deserve.
2021 is off to a strong start for stocks, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq up more than 1% in the first two weeks of the year.
Yet it's a far better year for undervalued blue-chips. In fact, analysts expect they could be set for one of the best 12-month rallies in market history.
JPMorgan thinks value stocks could soar 25%-50% in 2020 due to a potent combination of record-breaking stimulus and the end of the pandemic. This could potentially create the best economic growth in 20-50 years!
Many of the blue-chips Dividend Kings has been recommending for months now are rising like a Phoenix from the ashes of this recession to soar to new heights:
Walgreens (WBA) was 45% undervalued a few weeks ago when we were buying it aggressively. It's now up 23% year-to-date with a 26% capital gain for the Phoenix Portfolio.
Apogee Enterprises (APOG) is up 18% YTD and 64% for Phoenix.
Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) is up 18% and 34%, respectively.
Intel (INTC) is up 19% and 26%.
Applied Materials (AMAT) is up 23% and 102%.
Pembina Pipeline (PBA) is up 18% on both, with a safe 8% yield on cost.
It's been just two weeks since the year began, yet many of our highest-conviction Phoenix recs from 2020 are already up double-digits.
11 are up 10% or more.
26 are up 5% or more... with 256% CAGR capital gains not even counting the average 4% YOC!
Clearly then, this portfolio is off to a great start. And it’s up almost 40% since we began it in March.
Plus, thanks to Dividend Kings’ focus on quality first, prudent valuation, and sound risk management always, our fundamentals are likely to result in very impressive future returns.
Phoenix Portfolio Fundamentals (81% Dividend Stocks and 19% Growth Stocks)
Here’s some more data worth noting… and taking advantage of:
Average quality: 10.7/12 SWAN versus 10.9 for the average aristocrat
Average safety score: 4.8/5 very safe versus 4.7 for the average aristocrat
Average credit rating: A- stable for both, which means a 2.5% 30-year bankruptcy risk
Yield on cost: 4%
Current yield: 3.1% versus 1.5% for the S&P, 2.1% for dividend aristocrats (our equity benchmark), and 1.8% a 60/40 stock/bond portfolio
Morningstar long-term growth forecast: 12.9% CAGR versus 6.4% for the S&P 500 and 8% for dividend aristocrats
Weighted average forward P/E: 16.2 versus 16.7 historical norm versus 22.7 for the S&P 500
Average discount to fair value (Morningstar estimate): 3% versus -37% for the S&P 500 and -16% for aristocrats
5-year analyst consensus total return potential: 3.1% yield + 13.1% CAGR long-term growth + 0.6% CAGR valuation boost = 16.6% CAGR versus 3.8% for the S&P 500
Risk-adjusted expected return: 12.2% CAGR versus 2.9% for the S&P 500 (4.3X market's expected return).
Superior yield + superior growth + superior valuation + superior quality/safety = superior long-term results.
That's not just my opinion. It's proven financial science.
Our Real Money DK Video Phoenix Portfolio is also crushing it, for the record.
Dividend Kings Video Phoenix Portfolio
Since June 2020, our 181 blue-chip video recommendations have almost doubled the S&P 500's annualized total returns. In fact, all Dividend Kings’ portfolios are significantly outperforming their benchmarks.
Combined with our many valuable investing tools and dedication to strong customer service… is it any wonder that our members are thrilled to be a part of the Dividend Kings family?
What We're Doing to Help You Achieve Maximum Safe Income and Returns in 2021... and Beyond
This year, we'll be upgrading our Research Terminal with:
14 new metrics, including historical short, long-term bankruptcy, and accounting fraud risk
International dividend stocks (including the European dividend aristocrats)
7 new safety-screening criteria in our DK screening tool for a total of 20
2 new specialty watchlists, including foreign dividend stocks.
We'll also keep expanding our back office, which is now up to 16 people! This includes our head of customer service who built the entire Seeking Alpha customer service department. In other words, he knows how all SA systems work together and how to fix any issues that might come up.
Then, in a few months, we'll be adding more companies to the Dividend Kings Master List to create the DK 500. This will involve:
The highest-quality companies worth buying at the right prices
Every dividend aristocrat
Every dividend champion
Every dividend king
Every European dividend aristocrat
(Source: Future DK 500 Master List Companies Tool)
Via our DK member request form, our members get to nominate other potential additions, of which I analyze five per week. This collection is constantly evolving, with lower-quality companies getting replaced with higher-quality ones until our 500-company universe is far superior to the S&P.
Going beyond 2021, we plan to introduce a super-premium version of DK called DK Pro. It will be a fully automated research terminal designed for investing professionals.
Our goal is to make this the best safe income-focused tool in the world. You'll be able to type in the ticker for any U.S.-traded company and instantly get its:
Safety score and rating
Long-term dependability score and rating
Overall quality score and rating
Long-term total return potential
Investment decision score.
Plus, you’ll see how it compares to its major industry peers on all the above criteria. Basically, DK Pro will be the ultimate one-stop-shop for your investing needs.
With one click and in one minute, you’ll be able to perform the same due diligence that new investors would spend 24 hours doing – assuming they even knew which fundamentals were important.
This ambitious growth plan isn't cheap. DK is already spending over $40,000 per month on our world-class investment research platform. And we're going to have to spend a lot more to improve our service this year and beyond, including expanding our team significantly.
As such, another change does have to be made to ensure the best possible tools and quality to help you get rich.
