Dividend Deluxe Bonds normally fall into the high-yield stocks. However, to be classified as a deluxe bond, they need more qualities than that… Learn how to differentiate dividend deluxe bonds from dividend traps and know if you need them!
- A dividend deluxe bond is a company that pays a yield above 4% and that provides a dividend growth policy to at least cover the inflation. What other metrics do we need to find deluxe bonds? What kind of growth can we expect?
- Most deluxe bonds are stable businesses that would generate a good market cap. Therefore, most small caps would not fit in this category.
- There’s nothing like examples to better understand a concept so let’s share some! For each, Mike tells us if it’s a Dividend Deluxe Bond or a Dividend Trap and why. We start with a well-known pipeline: Enbridge (ENB).
