(A Top Pick Jan 22/16. Up 34.16%.) A very solid, stable company. The original business was pension benefits, but have also expanded into employees’ system programs which is growing.

They have the ability to grow their dividend at a steady pace.

As a consulting business, this company is all about assets, which are the people. There is not a lot of capital need in the business. Their cash flow covers the dividend and whatever they need to spend on R&D, etc. They are not going to grow a whole lot, but are pretty good about turning out cash flow. The 4.08% dividend is safe.

This company has a solid outlook, both in Canada and in the US where it is expanding. It hasn’t raised its dividend, but has publicized a range for earnings where it would raise its dividend, and it is right at the bottom of that range. As long as earnings are going to continue on an uptrend, he would think it should be raising its dividend anytime now. Dividend yield of 4.7%.

(A Top Pick May 31/16. Up 16.25%.) A business he likes a lot. Looking where we are in the cycle with potential increases from the Fed, you don’t want to have too much interest rate sensitivity in your portfolio. This one is really a growth stock with a yield. Sees this continuing to specifically grow in the US which he likes. Also, in 2007-2008, the business actually grew. Whether you are hiring or firing people, you need either services. The yield is safe.

A pension consultant, but have also gone into things like employee services. They’ve expanded into the US. They execute well and have a very stable business model. If they can continue carrying on in their business and not suffer too many losses from Obamacare, that’s pretty good.

This has been a beneficiary of the chase for yield, because of its healthy dividend. Earnings are growing and it hasn’t raised its dividend in quite a number of years, but the payout ratio is right at the bottom end of their window. Any quarter now we should see a positive move in the dividend. However, the stock is not a bargain anymore.

Tens of thousands of employees laid off in Alberta represent a source of growth to them. When oil and gas companies start hiring again this will be a source of business for MSI-T.

A great company and very well-managed. However, for him it is always too expensive. They’ve been able to grow organically, and he presumes they will increase the dividend as they continue to grow. A pricey stock.

A human resources consulting firm. One that a yield investor could invest in and not be too worried about where rates go. 4.59% dividend yield is fully covered by cash flow. This business grows 6%-8% a year on the top line, so very healthy. They keep on getting more and more clients every year. About 12% of their business is in the US, and thinks they will eventually make some US acquisitions to accelerate their growth.

Thinks the dividend is pretty safe, and is probably going to continue to grow over the next few years. This has very strong visibility and stability of their cash flows. 95%-99% of their annual revenues are recurring year-to-year. They are now growing in the US, so they are getting traction. The state of Illinois has just become a new customer. They keep making acquisitions to add to their cash flow and earnings. He definitely likes this. 4.5% dividend yield, which he thinks will grow nicely.

Primarily a pension and human resources consultant with a very solid history. A very good company and well-run. They have been in the US for the last few years and are continuing to grow their earnings. Dividend growth has been slow in the last few years because they were getting into acquisitions. Presumes dividend growth will resume in the next few years.
