Topics will Include:  
1.  After a 5 year bull-run. What should investors do?
  • Indexing (rebalance bonds and equities)
  • Sell everything (worst option, can’t time exit and entry points)
  • Investing for income – ignore market swings and business news, invest for dividends
  • Buy and Hold (best approach – stay the course)
  • Other options may include stop-limits, or even covered call EFs. But don’t go overboard.
2.   Screening dividend stocks. What to look for before buying.
  • Dividend yield (high yield = high risk)
  • Dividend Payout Ratio (DPR)  EPS / Annual Dividend * 100
  • Income Trusts, Oil and Gas REITS, not DRP, use distributable cash flow
  • DRIPs added when a company is short of cash (with Peter Hodson)
  • Company debt (i.e. debt to equity ratio)
  • Dividend Growth (at least 5 years, 10 years preferred)
  • Dividend performance in recessions (with Peter Hodson)
3. The impact of the Canadian financial industry on investor returns.
  • Mutual Fund Fees (Canadians paying the highest MERs in the world)
  • Load Fees (front-end, back-end, and deferred sales charges)
4. How to build your own mutual fund (a quick approach) - time permitting
  • Own the same stocks the mutual funds own
  • No need to pay commissions
  • No need to pay ongoing annual MERs
  • You keep 100% of the dividend income
