| Nasdaq: GAINX
About GAINX: The rapid pace of global change along with competition from emerging markets require successful companies to innovate and create to survive. That’s also true for investors, who may be facing low yields. Investors looking for income have to be concerned with potential rising inflation and rising yields.
Our Dividend Builder Fund (formerly, Inflation Managed Dividend Fund) uses an innovative 10 over 10 strategy in seeking a rate of dividend growth that exceeds the rate of inflation:
The Fund considers only dividend-paying companies that have provided an inflation-adjusted cash flow return on investment of at least 10% in each of the last 10 years. (That process reduces the potential field from 14,000 companies to about 400.)
Next we look for companies with at least a moderate dividend yield, a history of rising dividends, low levels of debt and a low payout ratio.
Each of the remaining candidates is thoroughly scrutinized using our fundamental individual security analysis, taking into account both macro and company business metrics.
The Fund invests in approximately 35 different dividend-paying companies from around the world.
