  2. WARNING: As the channel grows (thank you all for that), there are more and more scammers impersonating me. The only thing I am selling is my Research Platform and Book โ€‹โ€‹
    All that I do, the real links to my content are in the description of the video, I don’t give out my Whatsapp number and I don’t sell any Cryptocurrency related things! BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!

    1. Can you just discuss the stocks that you think are great? instead of wasting time on not great stocks

    1. I really like DOW. It’s cyclical, but according to my estimate the dividend (+5%) would be safe even in recessionary times.

    3. individual stocks still risky.. I would just invest in VYM or SCHD and be done with that. simple is best for me.

  3. Thanks Sven for your work! What about Midstream (MP) oil and gas companies? What are the factors they correlate most with (my assumption – demand of oil and gas and the need (the coasts) to replace the existing pipelines) and how different their performance is from the usual oil and gas companies?

    1. Stable business. The underlying commodity does factor in but the fact is that they charge a toll and usually on long term contracts so they are insulated to a degree from the ups and downs of the commodity. It is getting nearly impossible to lay new pipe in Canada and the US so this moats their business much like railroads. Usually pay a dividend as well.

  4. Great video as always Sven. I do wonder if you are considering making another video for the International ETF version VYMI? Keep it up! Btw, I just bought your book and Iโ€™m surprised of the amount of value Iโ€™m already receiving from starting to read it. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™

  5. Thank you. Always valuable content. I have ABBV, only pharma position. I picked up one share of JPM to keep an eye on it. If it drops to 2020 levels ($90) I’ll buy to ride it back up, but not to hold forever. Watching and adding to my positions in WBA, AQN, MO, LEG & PRU. All have current divs of 5%, which is my minimum div yield goal (income required soon). I won’t invest in anything that has Exxon in it, at least as much as I’m aware of it. KMI & OKE are my only positions in that sector.

  6. love the videos recently! a video looking into different chinese tech companies would be great (baba, baidu, xiaomi, zepp health, tencent)

  7. You have me addicted to watching your content! I really like your approach to investing and dispensing information. Thanks so much ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

  8. Hey Dr. Sven great info as always. Just wanted to ask you for your opinion on Morningstar taking out Key Ratios ๐Ÿ™ . I know we both liked it bcuz you showed it in your vids frequently. They said they moved it to Key Statistics but I canโ€™t find that. Did you find any other sections where it summarizes the financials well?

  9. Hey Sven! Just passing by to thank you for all the content you produce and thank you specially for reminding us that investing is not all roses and, although we’ve had a couple of years of great returns, things can always get ugly specially if we get greedy! Thanks a lot for the knowledge!

  10. Thank you. You are a great asset. Subscribed, bought the book and learn from you every day. ๐Ÿ‘

  11. My reason for tuning into Dr. Carlin’s channel – ” It is a gamble and i really don’t like gambles” 15:38. Bravo Sven !
    Serious question : If one is not relying on dividends to make ends meet, is buying a stock for dividends an apologetic way for telegraphing that the overall market is really expensive? The reason I ask is due to the double taxation on dividends. My 2 cents – I feel every investor should deduct their own tax outgo to calculate the dividend yield from a stock. I feel that I would really buy a stock for dividends only if there is a good chance of capital appreciation….

  12. Thanks Sven!!!
    I am with the QE graph in mind that you published in the last video.
    Its really mindblowing and of great value!!
    We are in a race against the permanent devaluation of the dollar.
    But if fed stop printing, many bussiness around the world will fall without revenue.
    So the printing will continue, faster or slower.

    So, we dont must buy assests that doesnt deliver grouth, such as stable companies with no grouth, for instance.

    Perhaps bonds now are a good option because they are going to rebound in the next QE…

    Well too much to choose… hahaha

    Very insightfull videos!!! Fortunate to had found them!

  13. This video misses the boat. This is an index ETF (Vanguard). It includes stocks that have a history of above average dividends. Far better for this type of analysis is SCHD (1% oil exposure) and HDV (more oil exposure) which are screened. Large Cap value did well in the inflationary decades of 1940 -1950 and 1966 – 1982. I can’t wait for the video that critics stocks within the SPY ETF.

  14. Hi Sven, here is my suggestion for two stocks to look with more scrutiny:
    SWK (stanley black and decker) = Input cost risk but maybe great part of this risk already discounted in the stock price. I own some money in SWK which offer a 10% total return (growth + dividend) + oppourtunity of multiple expansion down the road
    ICE = intercontinental exchange = in this case stock price beaten down because of strategic aquisition through issiuing debt + shareholders dilution (if I have gotten it right) = even in this case we are at circa 10% total return (business growth + dividend maybe some % lower from 10%), but opportunity of furtther earning growth due to the strategic aquisition they recently made. Risk of debt burden but great moat. I own some money in the stock.
    Let us know your opinion. ciao

  15. Hi Sven, what I find strange that when you talk about dividends you never talk payout ratio. You mentioned that for retail you are looking for dividends of 5% but at what payout ratio? Is it 10%, 50% or 100%? When I look at a dividend stock part of my valuation is to look at yield vs payout ratio. What I usually want to see is to yield x 10 being higher than payout ratio. When I look at ABBV stock right now with with ~3.6% dividend and payout ratio at ~75% it seems as overvalued but when you look at CE for example with ~2,4% dividend and only ~15% payout ratio it’s a different story. What that means is that if ABBV pays all of their cash flows to shareholder we would get 4.8% but if CE did the same we would be getting 16%. Of course valuation is never that simple but worth taking this into consideration when talking about dividend stocks.

  16. Excellent video! Please do a similar analysis for its international companion VYMI. Thanks in advance!!!
