Dividend Stocks Portfolio Management Strategies
Financial Markets and Financial Institutions
This paper reflects a particular strategy of building a dividend stocks portfolio among developing countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa). The strategy is based on two aspects that determine the dividend payments: financial characteristics of a company and catering theory. The catering theory research was conducted at the country’s economic sector level. Portfolios of dividend shares were formed according to the selected sectors. Forecasting model was based on the financial characteristics of a company. There was a successful implementation of this approach to the Russian, Indian and Chinese markets. The portfolio of Brazilian companies showed the yield of the stock index. The strategy was unsuccessful for the companies of South Africa.
