The High-Yield Dividend payers will continue to distribute dividends and can provide steady capital appreciation at the same time in the current low yield environment.
Curated by Motif Investing
Some companies are better at returning cash to shareholders than others. In today's near-zero interest rate environment, these companies separate themselves from the pack by offering an attractive combination of a composite yield of 4.6% and a 10-year track record of not cutting dividend payments.
What's more, companies with the confidence and discipline to return large amounts of cash to shareholders have often been in demand from income and value investors. Little wonder, given that between 1930 and 2012, dividends have contributed 42% percent of the S&P 500's total return.
We identified US-listed stocks and American Depository Receipts of companies that are engaged in activities relevant to this watchlist's theme. We then filtered out companies that have a share price of less than $1.00 or a market capitalization less than $100 million, and excluded illiquid stocks by screening companies for liquidity i.e. average bid-ask spreads, dollar volume traded etc. Finally the proprietary Motif Optimization Engine determined the constituent stocks.

ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) announced today that it intends to resume its share repurchase program in the fourth quarter. The oil company had previously suspended buybacks in April as it slashed spending and production to combat a significant decline in oil prices. ConocoPhillips anticipates repurchasing $1 billion of stock during the fourth quarter using the available cash on its balance sheet, which stood at $7.2 billion at the end of the second quarter.
ConocoPhillips said it plans to resume share repurchases of $1 bln in the fourth quarter. It also forecast quarterly production between 1.05 and 1.07 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd), including net curtailments of about 90,000 boepd. ConocoPhillips had reported output of 1.32 million boepd, excluding Libya, in the year-ago quarter.
Houston-based ConocoPhillips said it intends to resume share repurchases of $1 bln during the fourth quarter. The company had suspended its buyback program in April as oil futures tumbled toward an all-time low. It had halved the $3 billion a year buyback program in the prior month.
