Winning Growth & Income 14 Qualifying

Winning Growth & Income is a dividend investing strategy inspired by an approach used by American investment analyst Kevin Matras in his book, Finding #1 Stocks. It combines growth and dividend factors by sorting the market for high yielding companies with strong growth characteristics. Apart from a high yield, this strategy looks for companies with an above average return on equity, a below average price-to-earnings ratio and where analysts have been upgrading their earnings forecasts. It also looks for companies with a low beta (the sensitivity of a share price to the movement of the market). Kevin Matras says the screen works for investors that are "looking for good companies with solid revenues that pay a good dividend". In some respects, this strategy is a small cap version of the Large Cap Dividend Attraction strategy. In Matra's original strategy criteria he uses Zacks Rank, which is a metric for analysing analyst forecasts.
