MARKETS SPECTATOR: Super yield chasers

Self-funded retirees are the core drivers of Australian share prices, and managers of growth stocks like the miners are waking up to the need to pay substantial dividends.

You would have had to be hiding under a rock if you had not heard about the ‘yield’ trade in global equities, especially in Australia since we are one of the highest dividend paying markets in the world.

With cash rates globally at or nearing record lows, and some likely to go lower, anyone who needs to earn a real yield on their hard earned savings (superannuation in Australia) has had to move from cash and cash products into high yielding stocks.
