- I’m a big Fan of Index Funds – so yes, I respect Indexing Ian for what he does, even though there will be no index investments in the Fully Franked Fund;
- I don’t think the market is fully eFFicient, and as a result it’s possible to find great individual stock opportunities where price and value diverge (although this is no easy task); and
- Fully-Franked dividends are a Fantastic Foundation.
A core part of my investment strategy is the Focus on Fully Franked dividends – as well as the Fantastic tax benefits they provide (of course, this might be impacted slightly if the Government is successful with its $59 billion tax grab on Franking cash refunds).
I’m just about to pull the trigger on Fund Investment #7, but before I do, let’s look at the Fully Franked dividend potential of the Fund so far…
Upcoming March Dividends
Most Australian shares pay dividends only twice a year – around March / April, and again in September / October.
Of our 6 Investments so far, 5 of them will catch the March / April round of dividends. Woodside Petroleum will have to wait a few months for its maiden dividend contribution to the Fund.
Let’s have a look at what is coming our way in March…
