Research Watch

The top dividend destinations, banks vs resources, large cap returns, the Nikkei and short skirts, Dow 15,000, Dr Copper, and Buffett’s market forecasts.

Despite all this talk about the “hunt for yield”, it turns out you don’t need to venture too far at all. Credit Suisse has just named Australia among the top dividend destinations in the developed world, and lists the individual stocks that will help you capitalise. There aren’t any banks on that list, which could give weight to Goldman Sachs’ call to make the “switch from hell” – out of our big four, and into mining shares – although others suggest you should be thinking much smaller. Meanwhile, what Dow 15,000 means for you, and what Nikkei 13,000 means for a pop group that uses the index as a wardrobe cue. Dr copper looks ill and margin debt is hitting new highs, leading hedge fund manager Leon Black to sell everything that’s not nailed down. But on video, fresh from Berkshire Hathaway’s annual meeting, Warren Buffett makes a case for stocks at record levels (he remembers Dow 100).
