What are the shares of the future, the ones that should find a place in every share investor's portfolio?
The Sydey Morning Herald asked five leading share analysts to nominate five shares each.
The picks have to be suitable for conservative investors who intend to invest for the long term.
Naturally, those requirements lead to the larger companies that tend to pay higher dividends than other companies and often, but not always, have high levels of franking credits.
With interest rates at a 50-year low, investors have been chasing yield on the sharemarket.
As a consequence, share prices of the big dividend payers, such as most of the big banks and Telstra, have, until recently, risen strongly over the past two years.
Much of the sell-off on the Australian sharemarket over the past few weeks has simply followed selling on Wall Street.

New opportunities were thin on the ground this week, with the majority of companies to report experiencing deteriorating Skaffold Scores. Many stocks also continue to trade at large premiums to Skaffold’s intrinsic value estimates.
After 6 years of membership in Skaffold’s premium group of companies, Domino’s Pizza Enterprises (DMP) has declined to B3.
This is a great example of Skaffold’s ability to demystify company results and present the facts of the case, so to speak.
