MoneySense has assessed 100 income trusts and 100 income-generating stocks for their ability to provide generous income for a reasonable price. The top firms get an A; good ones land a B.
Our grades are based on yield (how much they pay out), reliability (how safe is the payout), and value (lots of assets at a low price). The data was collected from Bloomberg on January 16, 2009. Read our methodology for details.
Use our grades as a starting point for your own research. Like any investment screen, the Income 100 is intended to help you hit upon a few good ideas that may deserve a place in your investment portfolio.
