Despite the “bad news” federal budget, the Master Builders Australia quarterly survey for June 2014 confirms that builder confidence is strong.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a bricks-and-mortar investor backing the “great Australian dream” or a believer in equities as a wealth-generation mechanism, when it comes to the construction boom, everyone can benefit. A handful of exceptional businesses have substantial exposure to the construction sector. They’re not the builders, they’re the suppliers and manufacturers of goods and services essential to construction activity.

With confidence in Australia’s building industry at six-year highs, there’s never been a better time to reassess the fortunes of listed stocks significantly exposed to the much-beleaguered construction sector.

With interest rates at historical lows and further cuts likely, investors chasing income shouldn’t overlook high quality listed stocks paying consistently high dividends.

If you rely on income from your share portfolio, chances are you’re attracted to stocks that pay good dividends. The problem is a good dividend does not always equal good investment.

Poor and worsening economics – high debt, declining profits, negative cash flow – tend to lead to falling share prices. The secret is to find companies that pay “good” dividends.
