Top Net Payout Yield Stocks To Buy Right Now

Here is the edited transcript of the interview on CNBC-TV18.

Q: Investor can invest Rs 30,000 per month for 20 years. Since you have the profile of the investor with you what would you advice him? Is he investing correctly?

A: Firstly, we will talk about life insurance. He has Rs 7.5 lakh in different policies but, he is under-insured basically. He should increase his life cover through a term insurance plan.

Second thing is mutual funds. He has too many schemes in his portfolio so he can continue with HDFC Mid-Cap Opportunities Fund , HDFC Top 200 Fund and ICICI Prudential Discovery Fund . He should discontinue other schemes.

If he wants to remain invested for sometime that’s okay, but at least for SIP he should discontinue. He should continue only for 4 to 5 funds. The funds which he has in midcap category like HDFC Mid-Cap Opportunities and ICICI Discovery Fund are both good funds. But, he can include one large cap fund like ICICI Prudential Focused Bluechip Fund in his portfolio. Also one gold fund should be included in his portfolio.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    5. Dividends, stock buy-backs, capex, and M&A all increase at a double-digit rate – This is led by a lot of cash flow, underleveraged balance sheets, and possible great places to use cash. The argument for higher cap-ex is as follows: “Pent-up demand and aging of plant, equipment and technology argue for increases in those key areas.”

    ETF Recommendation: Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF (NYSEArca: VIG) for dividend growers, and PowerShares Buyback Achievers (NYSEArca: PKW) for buyback stocks. Hint: the buyback ETF rose by 45.5% in 2013 after dividend adjustments versus 28.8% for the dividend growth ETF.

    6. The U.S. dollar appreciates as U.S. energy and manufacturing trends continue to improve.

    Khan was not incredibly active in the quarter, which isn’t surprising — he follows strict buying criteria related to book value and margin of safety, and tends to hold for much longer than most investors. Khan Brothers did take a stake in embattled smart phone company Blackberry (BBRY), which has gone on the auction block. The firm also upped its stake in BP (BP) by more than 500% during the third quarter and bought more shares of New York Community Bank (NYCB).

  • [By Selena Maranjian]

    Among holdings in which Kahn Brothers increased its stake were New York Community Bancorp (NYSE: NYCB  ) and oil giant BP (NYSE: BP  ) . New York Community Bancorp, known for prudent management of credit risk, has grown by an annual average of 28%(!) since its IPO in 1993. It has been buying other banks and expanding its commercial and industrial lending business. The bank’s third quarter featured estimate-topping earnings (albeit lower than those from a year ago) and improving credit quality. Some see the bank’s sizable multifamily loan portfolio as a particularly promising asset, offering refinancing-related income. New York Community Bancorp stock sports a whopping 6.2% dividend yield.
