37 Year-Old Genius Finds 12 Stocks with Total Yields of up to 27.7%
These stocks are paying dividend yields of up to 18.5%...
PLUS additional "tax-free" yields as high as 25.8%
"Paying a dividend may be the obvious way to return capital to shareholders, but it's not the only way...and it may not be the best way...this yield strategy shows impressive performance."
Barron's, October 2013
Keep reading to see a list of the 12 highest-yielding stocks
selected by this groundbreaking new strategy...
Every once in a while the incredible happens...
You meet someone you'll always remember.
This person may be a teacher, a spouse, or a lifelong friend.
For me it was a classmate I met in business school...
We were both just 20-year-old students at the time, taking a class taught by
legendary investor John Griffin and guest speaker Julian Robertson. The
class was held at my alma mater -- the McIntire School of Commerce at the
University of Virginia.
A few years ago, BusinessWeek rated McIntire the number one undergraduate business school in the country.
Of course, I had no way of knowing it at the time, but my classmate would go
on to write several bestselling financial books, including The Ivy
Portfolio and Shareholder Yield.
His market analysis and research would soon be featured in Barron's, The New York Times, and The New Yorker.
And he'd become a regular guest on CNBC and sought-after speaker at investing conferences around the world.
His friends call him "Meb." But when it comes to the stock market... experts around the world are calling him a genius...
"Of the many books I've read on investment strategies over the past decade, I put [the Ivy Portfolio] at the top of the class" -- Doug Short, Advisor Perspectives
"The most useful book could be [the Ivy Portfolio] by money manager Mebane Faber. He offers a simplified model that regular people can adopt." -- BusinessWeek
"If he keeps up what he's doing, he's going to be famous someday... He simply has too many good ideas" -- Stansberry Research
As you can see, Mebane is an up-and-coming star in the financial world. And by using his newest strategy -- based on a groundbreaking academic study he published last year -- we recently uncovered 12 stocks with yields ranging from 16.3% to 27.7%.
These are the types of yields that can really move the needle on your portfolio, and they're far higher than anything else I've ever seen in my career.
In a moment, I'm going to show you the full list of all 12 of these high yielders.
I'll also show you exactly why stocks that rank highly based on Mebane's newest strategy -- which we're calling Total Yield -- have also delivered market-crushing capital gains since 1982.
But first, let's take a look at exactly how Mebane's system works, as well as the results he's generated so far...
Mebane Faber Unveils Breakthrough Investing Strategy
About a year ago, Mebane launched a
brand new fund based on this new yield strategy -- the Cambria Shareholder Yield ETF (NYSE: SYLD). Since then, investors have poured over $180 million into this
And they haven't been disappointed...
- 24 of the top 25 companies he's found have at least doubled (or more) the S&P's return as of last November.
- Some of his picks gained as much as 224%... 124%... and 132%... in less than 8 months.
- Since the fund's inception last May, it's handily outperformed the S&P.
No wonder Bloomberg recently rated Mebane's new fund the "#1 ETF launch of
And back-testing Mebane's strategy -- over three decades -- clearly shows these results aren't a fluke.
Going all the way back to 1982, academic research shows that Mebane's strategy outperforms both the S&P 500 and a basket of top high-yielding dividend stocks.
See for yourself:
Bottom line: $100,000 invested in the S&P 500 back in 1982 would have been worth
$2.3 million by the end of 2011.
But the same $100,000 invested using this new Total Yield strategy would have been worth $6.7 million.
And Mebane's recent results are just as impressive.
Since May 2013, his Total Yield strategy has trounced the S&P, the Dow Jones Dividend Index, and the Hedge Fund Index.
And this new Total Yield strategy has even outperformed Warren Buffett's
Berkshire Hathaway by a better than 3-to-1 margin.
Take a look...
What's amazing is that based on back-tested results, the Total Yield strategy
has outperformed the markets over the past 30 years. And while the last three
decades have generally been good for stocks, there have been some notable
- The decline of -11.9% for the S&P 500 in 2001
- -22.1% in 2002
- And -37.0% in 2008... the worst year of the most vicious bear market since the 1930s.
While no magic formula can protect investors from all market turmoil, Total
Yield would have helped shelter investors from the worst of these downturns.
This strategy outperformed the S&P in all three bear market years. It eked out a 0.9% gain in 2001, and it outperformed the S&P by an average of 9 percentage points per year when the market got crushed in 2002 and 2008.
So as you can see, Total Yield works in both bull and bear markets.
And that outperformance has continued in recent years.
As I mentioned earlier, we recently compiled a list of the 12 stocks with the highest Total Yields in America. These stocks are not only paying total yields of 16.3%, 25.3%, and 27.7% -- but they also beat the S&P by a wide margin over the last five years, and have delivered an average gain of 131%.
I'll show you this entire list in just a moment, as well as how to get instant access to the names and ticker symbols of all 12 of these Total Yielders.
But first, allow me to introduce myself...
My name is Paul Tracy.
I'm the co-founder of StreetAuthority -- one of the world's largest and most successful independent financial publishing firms.
We've been in business for over 12 years, and in that time we've helped millions
of investors in 223 different countries across the globe safely increase their
wealth... year after year.
Our mission is to help individual investors earn above-average profits by providing a source of independent, unbiased -- and most of all, profitable -- investing ideas.
StreetAuthority spends millions of dollars on research each year and employs a team of experts across the U.S. and Canada.
Before joining us, these experts worked as financial advisors, investment relations presidents, business reporters for major newspapers and as senior analysts at top Wall Street firms.
This experienced team helps us uncover unusual investing opportunities that you aren't likely to find anywhere else.
That's why more than two million investors read our newsletters and our web articles each month, and it's why Yahoo Finance, MSN, Nasdaq, and many other major media outlets feature our content.
It's also the reason we're able to connect with top talent in the investing
world... people like Mebane Faber.
I first began talking with Mebane about this project nearly two years ago. At the time, he was kind enough to send me an advance copy of his latest research on Total Yield.
Put simply, Total Yield looks at the three ways companies can actively return money to their shareholders.
Companies can return wealth by:
1.) Paying dividends
2.) Buying back stock
3.) Reducing their debt load
Now, you could become a better investor and possibly get better-than-average results by using any one of these measurements.
But if you're like us, you don't just want "better-than-average" results.
You want extraordinary results...
I'm talking about gains of 105%...124%...even 224% in less than one year.
To see what I mean, take a look at the chart below.
It's a snapshot of all of the top portfolio holdings in Mebane's new
exchange-traded fund (ETF) as of late 2013.
Now imagine if this were your portfolio...
Imagine opening your statement and seeing gains like these... in less than a year.
First of all, you can see that every single stock has made money... including three picks up over 100% and one up over 224%.
Second, you can't help but notice that even the "worst" pick on this list is up over 40%.
If you're familiar with the markets, you know right away that it takes extraordinary talent to get these kinds of results.
World class talent.
And when I mention world class talent, just take a look at Mebane's results in the third quarter of 2013 compared to some of the most famous investors in the world... John Paulson, David Einhorn, Warren Buffett, and George Soros.
Now, in some ways this comparison isn't fair.
For example, because of the size of his holding company (around $280 billion) a big investor like Buffett has to deal with a whole different set of metrics when choosing stocks.
And I don't mean to knock any of these great investors... after all, they've proven they can generate huge returns for decades.
Still... it sure looks like the Total Yield strategy is off to a great start.
The Dividend Advantage That Gets You 480-Times More CashAs you probably know, there are essentially just two types of companies in the investing world...
First, there are firms that return nothing to investors. They don't pay dividends or distribute wealth back to shareholders.
The best you can hope for when you give this type of company your money is that share prices will rise and make your shares more valuable.
Even worse, some of these companies "steal" from investors by issuing lots of new shares and decreasing the value of every share you own.
The second type of company rewards shareholders by issuing dividends, buying back stock, and reducing debt.
Let's take a look at each of these three methods of returning money to shareholders... starting with dividends.
It probably comes as no surprise that, over time, companies that return money to shareholders in the form of dividend payments are a MUCH better investment.
That's a statement with a lot of history to back it up.
If you take a look at equity returns going all the way back to 1871, investors in U.S. stocks would have gained just 4.1% a year between 1871 and 2011 if you exclude dividends and dividend reinvestment.
But the same portfolio with dividends would have returned 8.8% a year -- more than twice as much.
This means dividends, and reinvested dividends, historically account for over half of the market's total return.
If 1871 seems like ancient history to you, consider a more recent example...
From 1972 through 2011, members of the S&P that didn't pay dividends returned a measly 1.4% per year, turning a $1,000 investment into just $1,710.
However, companies that paid dividends returned MUCH more... 8.6% annually.
That's enough to turn the same $1,000 investment into $27,036...
In 2010, noted Dartmouth College finance professor Kenneth French ranked U.S.
stocks from 1927-2010 into high, medium, low and zero yield portfolios.
French reported that portfolios of stocks with the highest dividend yields returned 11.2% per year, stocks with low dividend yields returned 9.1%, and stocks paying no dividends returned 8.4% per year.
Mebane's findings confirm French's conclusion....
His research shows that over the long haul, stocks paying dividends gained an average of 4.6 percentage points more per year than stocks that didn't pay dividends.
These favorable results were even more pronounced in the slower growth environment like the one that started in 2000. By how much? High dividend yielding stocks have outperformed non-payers by a whopping 9.1% on average per year since 2000.
Mebane's back-tested results were conclusive, but not really that surprising. Among experienced investors, it's considered common knowledge that dividend-paying stocks beat the market over the long haul.
But what Mebane discovered next was rather earth-shattering...
You see, after years of research, Mebane ultimately discovered that dividends weren't the only key to investing success.
Instead, he discovered a strategy that worked FAR BETTER than looking at dividends alone...
Mebane noticed that right now, top companies are returning nearly half a trillion dollars to their investors each year by buying back shares of their own stock.
These share buybacks can give you much more value than traditional dividends.
So how do share buybacks reward investors?
Think of it in terms of your share of a company's earnings. If you own 10% of a company that earned $1,000, your share of earnings would be $100.
But if that company bought back half of its stock, your portion of the earnings would double to $200.
And that's without you having invested another dime.
As CFOs and investors alike began to see the wealth-producing value of share buybacks a few years ago, an interesting trend began...
They started allocating more money to buybacks than to dividend payments.
As you can see below, U.S. companies have spent MORE on share buybacks than on dividends every year since 1998...
Again, when a company buys up its own stock, fewer outstanding shares remain and
the value of the remaining shares goes up -- even if the company doesn't earn
another dime. That makes it much easier for these stocks to rack up impressive
gains in a short amount of time.
Just take a look at the PowerShares Buyback Achievers (NYSE:PKW). This fund invests in companies that have bought back at least 5% of their shares during the prior 12 months.
And not surprisingly, this fund has nearly doubled the returns of the S&P 500 over the past five years, gaining an astounding 119%.
And keep in mind that this 119% gain just represents the average of all the
individual stocks held in the ETF. There are individual holdings within the fund
that returned much, much more.
A great example of the power of share buybacks can be seen with retail giant Home Depot (NYSE: HD). Since 2011 the company has repurchased an astonishing $17 billion worth of its own shares. While Home Depot only pays a current dividend yield of 1.9%, its aggressive buyback strategy has rewarded investors with a much higher total return...
In the last 3 years, Home Depot's share price has soared over 143%.
Using Buybacks to Increase Total YieldYou're probably wondering, just how much can buybacks increase your Total Yield?
The impact is both measureable and shocking...
Consider the chart below, which shows how the top 25% highest-yielding members of the S&P compared to the top 25% that reward investors through both dividends and buybacks.
As you can see, companies that are committed to both dividends AND buybacks are
returning more than 2X the money to shareholders than stocks with the highest
dividend yields alone.
But the chart above only shows the average among the highest 25% of companies in the S&P.
Dividends and buybacks can lead to even HIGHER total yields when you look at individual stocks.
We just put the finishing touches on a brand new special report entitled ďThe Top 12 Highest Total Yields in America.Ē In this report, we identify a small, fast-growing telecom company with a great 8.5% dividend yield... AND an even more impressive total yield of 27.7%.
We also found a specialty chemicals and materials company that just spent $850 million buying back its shares over the last year... giving it a stunning 25.8% buyback yield.
Iím going to show you how to get instant access to this report... and all of our Top Total Yield picks -- including names and ticker symbols -- in just a moment.
But first I want to show you a few more reasons why share buybacks are such an important part of our total yield equation.
First, if you're only focusing on dividend yield, you're missing your share of the $455 billion spent by U.S. companies on buybacks in the U.S. over the last 12 months alone.
Buybacks act as a direct transfer of wealth from the seller to the buyer. So, once you think of it that way, it makes no sense to look at just dividend yields in isolation.
If you agree with us that it makes perfect sense to invest ONLY in businesses that are returning the largest amount of cash to their investors, then you need to look at all the ways companies distribute their cash, not just dividend payments.
And there's another reason buybacks are more valuable than ordinary dividend income...
The Buyback Advantage Coveted by Warren Buffett --
There's an even bigger benefit to owning shares of companies that choose to buy back stock -- and it's one of the strategies that's helped Buffett amass his nearly $60 billion fortune.
In a regular brokerage account, dividends create a taxable event. Depending on where that cash was sourced from and your marginal tax rate, you could lose up to 39.6% of your dividends to Uncle Sam.
On the other hand, when a buyback happens, no taxable event is created.
Instead, the value created by the buyback can continue to grow until you sell the shares. At that time you will only be responsible for the capital gains, which max out at 20% for investments held more than a year.
It's like getting tax-free dividend payments.
And these tax-free dividends are a little-known favorite of Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, and many other billionaire investors.
As Mebane explains:
Buybacks and dividends are basically the same thing mathematically speaking, but buybacks have a little better tax treatment than dividends, so we've seen this huge shift to companies now paying out more in buybacks than dividends.Again, dividends are great, and the evidence clearly shows that dividend-paying stocks -- and higher-dividend-yielding stocks -- have outperformed the broader market as long as anyone has been calculating returns.
Buffett said way back in '84 that when companies find their shares below intrinsic value, there's no alternative that can benefit shareholders more than repurchases.
So we think that focusing on dividends alone is a big mistake. We believe a more holistic approach to selecting stocks based on distributable cash flows to investors is much more reasonable.
But if you're focusing on dividends alone, you're missing your share of the $455 billion spent by U.S. companies on buybacks in the U.S. over the last 12 months alone.
But the Total Yield strategy doesn't just consider dividends and buybacks. It also incorporates a third metric...
The Third Total Yield Profit Maximizer:The third part of our Total Yield strategy looks at corporate debt repayment.
Companies That Pay Down Debt
The reason? Companies that allocate cash to reduce their debt-load make for safer and higher-yielding investments in the short and long-term.
Paying down debt reduces interest costs, freeing up more capital for other uses... like increasing dividends and buying back shares.
When a company reduces its debt, it's a strong signal that it has its act together. It's generating enough cash flow and doesn't need to depend on borrowing to expand operations, fund R&D efforts, take care of customer needs and run a profitable business.
Now, let's take a look at what can happen when a company doesn't do a good job of reducing debt.
We'll use automaker General Motors (NYSE: GM) as an example.
From 1931 to 2007, General Motors led the world in global vehicle sales.
Yet in spite of the company's industry-leading status, by June 2009 the firm was forced to file for bankruptcy and ask for financial help from the federal government.
So what happened?
Well, GM's many woes can ultimately be traced back to one thing... debt.
At the time the company was forced to file for chapter 11 protection it was drowning in roughly $100 billion in debt. And common shareholders in the company were forced to watch as the value of their investments went to zero.
Although it certainly can't eliminate the risk of default... our Total Yield strategy is designed to help reduce this risk. It does this by investing in companies that are reducing their debt loads.
And there's an added bonus...
Firms that pay down their debt burden not only stand a better chance of surviving, but over time they also outperform the broader market.
Mebane's research on debt-reduction has yielded clear results.
Between 1982 and 2011, the top 25% of stocks in the S&P ranked by debt pay-down outperformed the S&P by more than 2% per year...
Let's take a look at a specific example from Mebane's ETF holdings to see how
debt-reduction can help your returns...
Since 2009, portfolio holding Fortress Investment Group (NYSE: FIG) has been on a mission to reduce debt.
Over the last four years the firm has spent a little over $1 billion paying off debt.
And since 2009 the company has not issued a single new share of stock.
Here's what's happened to the stock over the last year...
Fortress Investment Group is up 102% in the last year alone.
Or how about Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX). This high Total Yielder has managed to decrease the amount of annual interest paid on its debt from $592 million to $181 million over the last three years.
Xerox also spent over $1.6 billion on share buybacks over the last two years.
Thanks in part to these shareholder-friendly moves, the stock has been on a tear... gaining 62% over the last year.
Again, the way debt reduction works to supercharge your returns is pretty
The less money a company is obligated to pay creditors, the more it has to line your pockets.
For experienced investors this may sound obvious, but it's amazing how many people -- even Wall Street "experts" -- become blind to debt as long as share prices keep rising.
And this "debt-blindness" is a recipe for disaster... one we saw play out during the dot-com crash and then again more recently during the Great Recession of 2008 and 2009.
Our Total Yield strategy is brilliantly designed to help you sidestep some of these pitfalls.
By refusing to invest in companies that are going deeper and deeper into debt, Total Yield is nicely prepared to weather the storm when times get tough.
In fact, the Total Yield strategy has already proven its resiliency during bear markets.
Based on Mebane's back-tested results, Total Yield outperformed the S&P in all three of the most recent bear market years. It eked out a 0.9% gain in 2001, and it outperformed the S&P by an average of 9 percentage points per year when the market got crushed in 2002 and 2008.
New Total Yield StrategySo if dividend-paying stocks beat the market consistently over time...
Combines the Best of Both Worlds
... and if companies that buy back stock outpace the broader market year after year...
... and if firms that reduce their debt loads ALSO beat the market...
Then what happens when you invest in companies that are returning a small fortune to their investors via dividends, buybacks, and debt paydown?
As it turns out, a tremendous body of new breakthrough academic research has been done on this topic. And the latest research has been led by the up-and-coming star in the investment world that I attended class with back in my college days -- Mebane Faber.
Combining dividends, buybacks and debt paydown leads to far greater yields and better total returns over time than using any of these strategies in isolation.
And based on back-tested data going all the way back to 1982, this Total Yield strategy not only crushed the S&P 500... it also beat strategies based solely on dividends, buybacks, or debt paydown alone...
Total Yield Combines All Three Strategies into One Powerful Stock Selection SystemThe reason Total Yield outperforms all of these other strategies is because it looks at ALL of the ways a company distributes money back to its shareholders.
While dividends, share buybacks and debt reduction are all shareholder friendly moves on their own... Total Yield accelerates wealth accumulation by combining all three into one profit maximizing strategy.
Take a look at a quick example that illustrates just how simple, yet powerful Total Yield is when you put it to work in your portfolio...
Let's say you were trying to choose between investing in consumer goods company Unilever PLC (NYSE: UL) and personal care products company Nu Skin Enterprises (NYSE: NUS).
If you were to simply look at dividend yield you would see that Unilever yields
3% and Nu Skin yields 1%.
But if you dig a little deeper, you'll find that Unilever's share count has remained stagnant over the last few years.
By contrast, Nu Skin has taken a very different approach to returning value to shareholders -- spending $314 million on buybacks in the last two years alone.
Those share buybacks helped fuel higher stock prices and increased each shareholder's wealth almost instantly.
The Total Yield strategy passed on Unilever and picked up Nu Skin.
You can see the results for yourself...
Unilever has gained a little over 2% over the last year. Meanwhile, Total Yield pick Nu Skin gained more than 247%...
Unilever's total return (including dividends) over the past year was roughly 10%, while Nu Skin's return was an astonishing 280%.
That means investors who only looked at dividend yield missed 270 percentage points in additional gains.
That's the power of Total Yield.
A Revolutionary Way to Increase Shareholder WealthAgain, while dividends, share buybacks, and debt repayment are all shareholder friendly moves on their own... these concepts work even better when used together.
As I showed you a moment ago, over the period from 1982 to 2011, the top 25% of stocks ranked by Total Yield returned 15.04% annualized, outperforming the S&P 500 and stocks ranked solely by dividend yield by a wide margin.
And more recently, ever since Mebane began putting Total Yield to work last May,
the results have been excellent.
Since then, Meb's Total Yield ETF has handily outperformed the S&P and the Dow Jones Industrial Average...

But what's really important is that Nathan is quite simply one of the best analysts I've ever met.
Some of his current Total Yield discoveries will show you what I mean. Here are just a few highlights...
- One of his top Total Yield picks has repurchased nearly $3 billion worth of its own shares over the last 3 years. This "wide-moat" firm dominates its industry... boasting a consistent 30% market share and a Total Yield of 14.7%. It also enjoys one of the most impressive dividend track records we've ever seen, having increased its dividend payments every year for 40 straight years.
- Another of his recent picks has a dividend yield of 18.5%... but when you add in share buybacks and debt paydown, the firm's Total Yield is over 25%. Even better... this stock is currently trading at the cheapest price we've seen since 2001.
"You guys are far and away one of the best in the business - I have been in the business since 1960 in brokerage, trust management, and now as a registered investment advisor (RIA) in Maine.Now it's your turn to put the Total Yield strategy and Nathan's stock selection talent to work for you...

But before I go any further, earlier in today's presentation I promised you a list of the 12 Highest Total Yields in America. Here it is:
In fairness to our paid subscribers to Total Yield, we can't reveal the names

Here's a sampling of just a few of the specific stock recommendations you'll get when you take a no-risk subscription to Total Yield:
- Nathan recently found a medical supplier that's rewarding shareholders all 3 ways: increasing dividends, aggressively buying back shares and lowering debt. This 126-year-old company controls some of the most valuable health care brands in the world. It's also a favorite of billionaire investor George Soros, who owns more than 1 million shares. And best of all, right now the stock is paying a Total Yield of 24.1%.
- Another favorite boasts enormous lithium assets in Chile. Right now the market for lithium is dominated by batteries used in cell phones. But the market for batteries in electric cars is sending demand soaring. It requires 3,000 times more lithium to make a car battery than a cell phone battery. Nathan's top pick in this space is an industry leader that's cashing in on this growth. Over the past year it has distributed $170 million in dividends and paid off $941 million in debt, giving the stock a Total Yield of 20.3%.
- Another top Total Yielder operates a network of regional banks in the northeast U.S... from New York to Maine. This rock solid company has been in business for nearly 200 years, and it has a long history of returning money to shareholders. It's paid a steady dividend every quarter for the last 20 years, and over that time span its dividend has increased 541%. This little bank is also buying back a ton of its own stock -- more than $1 billion worth since 2010 alone. No wonder the stock has skyrocketed 2,720% higher since 1993.
And that's just for starters...

- The 12 Highest Total Yields in America

This report reveals the names and ticker symbols of all 12 companies, along with a detailed analysis of Nathan's favorites.
One of his recommended buys sports a dividend yield of 18.5%... and a total yield of 25.3%. Even better... it's currently trading for the cheapest price we've seen in over a decade.

- Buyback Kings: 3 Companies that are Repurchasing 10% (or More) of Their Stock
When a company has enough cash to buy back more than 10% of its stock in a single year, you need to stand up and take notice.
One of Nathan's favorite "Buyback Kings" purchased $4.5 billion worth of its own shares over the last year. And this wasnít a one-time fluke. This company has spent an astonishing $10.1 billion on buybacks over the last four years. So it should come as no surprise that its stock is up a mind-boggling 111% over the last year... and showing no sign of slowing down.
Another is a growing digital entertainment company that's bought back more than $20.3 billion of its shares since 2010. Warren Buffett -- who loves companies with strong buyback programs -- currently owns 36.5 million shares of this stock... an investment worth over $2.6 billion.

- Fast-Growing Smallcaps with Total Yields up to 14.5%
Only 1-in-100 investors have probably heard of all of these tiny companies. But that could change very soon.
One of the strengths of smallcaps is the possibility of rapid growth... and one of these picks has been growing like crazy. Over the last 3 years the firm has averaged 51% net income growth. For comparison... a big, mature company like Microsoft has averaged net income growth of only 5% over the same time period.
Another one of these smallcaps has bought back more than two million shares over the last two years... shrinking the share count by roughly 10%. And the firm's Total Yield is a mouth-watering 14.5%.
