Investing Options for Income Investors
Investors looking for income often fall into the trap of buying the highest-yielding equities they can find. They will often ignore the underlying fundamentals of the holdings and watch their principal erode as the dividend payments come in.
In general, when evaluating dividend securities, it is important to focus on companies that not only pay and grow their dividends, but also have positive free cash flow sufficient to cover the dividend payment. In addition, at Navellier we’ve found that some of the most profitable dividend stocks are those that demonstrate compelling profitability measures. What this means is that these stocks should exhibit positive return on equity and positive return on assets.
At Navellier, our dividend and income portfolios strive for portfolio growth through securities with capital appreciation, strong dividend growth and income opportunities.
Power Dividend Portfolio: This portfolio invests in U.S. listed securities with market capitalizations greater than $250 million that pay dividends. The strategy may hold American Depositary Receipts (ADRs). Typically, the strategy invests in approximately 15 to 25 stocks.
Our suite of income portfolios:
- Are managed by Navellier Portfolio Managers.
- Implement a rigorous testing process.
- Are adjusted to adapt to changing market trends.

Concentrated High Dividend Portfolio: This portfolio is highly concentrated and focuses on identifying dividend-paying securities with the potential for stable consistent income. The strategy invests in U.S. listed securities with market capitalizations greater than $1 billion. The universe is screened based on free cash flow. Stocks are then ranked by yield and dividend growth rate. The most attractive stocks based on yield are fundamentally ranked using Navellier’s proprietary fundamental ranking system. At any given time, the strategy may hold up to 30% in American Depositary Receipts (ADRs). Typically, the strategy invests in approximately 10 to 20 stocks.
Covered Call Portfolio: The strategy with this portfolio is to buy stocks and simultaneously write call options against them. This allows the portfolio to generate income (via the premiums earned on the calls and the dividends). The strategy’s goal is to achieve premium income while forfeiting the least amount of stock appreciation. To generate greater growth potential, the strategy will generally write covered calls on only a portion of the equity positions in the portfolio and will generally focus on higher dividend paying companies.
Our dividend and income portfolios are best used along with other styles and asset classes.
