The dividend gems the market forgot

Income investors relying on ASX blue-chips have been under increasing pressure. However, another source of income has returned to the top end of the market. Speaking at a recent event held by IRESS and Livewire, Peter Gardner from Plato Investment Management identified a long-absent income opportunity back on the menu.

Peter Told the audience: “In terms of the gems that we see now in the market, it is in a place that people haven’t really seen income from in the past… and they’re sitting on fully franked yields of over 7% now.” In this short video, with transcript, he explains the market dynamics behind the return of this income from some of the biggest names on the Australian market.
