Double Down On Dividends

Fast Money Portfolio
Fast Money Portfolio

Forget Treasurys, bonds or REITs, there’s more value in dividend paying equities!

That’s according to 4-star fund manager Diane Jaffee of TCW, who oversees $5.6 billion fund that’s focused on dividend payers.

As of March 31, 2012 the top holdings for TCW Dividend Focused fund were:
Pfizer
Chevron
JPMorgan Chase
Home Depot
Kraft

Jaffee tells us, “We look for increasing cash flow, leading to increasing operating margins leading to increasing earnings and then being paid out in terms of dividend yield.”

And all of the names listed above fit the bill. “The story is not over,” she says.
