Fund Manager Captures Big Dividends in Microsoft, Las Vegas Sands

Dividend capture is a smart strategy for securing yield in the current low-yield environment, says Jim O'Donnell, portfolio manager for the Forward Dynamic Income Fund. O'Donnell says Microsoft is a good company to use when trying to pocket a payout because of its steady cash flow and higher trending stock. He says Las Vegas Sands is another good name for the strategy because of its strong cash flow stream and growth in its Macau operations. Finally, he likes North Star Realty Finance for the strategy because it is a REIT with a high dividend that is successfully migrating from mortgages to healthcare.
