Markets have been turbulent following the unexpected vote to leave the EU. And rightfully so - economic growth is based on the confidence to invest in property, plant, equipment or research and development now in order to generate profits in the future. If those investments are deferred or not made then that growth does not materialise. Spending will also be deferred by consumers uncertain about…

And in that I think it is right to question the foundation upon which the…

I like dividends. As a discretionary share-picker then they have some great qualities: they confirm that a company generates real FCF, the discipline of paying them can keep management from wasting shareholder capital, and increases of dividend can signal managements' confidence in the future far better then mere talk.
