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.

With the valuations of ASX-listed companies looking increasingly stretched, it’s more important than ever to use Skaffold’s filters to flag which stocks to avoid in 2014. The filters built into Skaffold stock research software help to remove stocks from your radar that aren’t regarded as investment grade – which by Skaffold’s measure is limited to stocks with an A1, A2 or B1 and B2 rating of balance sheet quality and business performance.
Removing ratings that don’t make the grade culls the stocks you should be seriously looking at down to around 160, which is only 10% of the 1,770 ASX-listed entities rated and evaluated by Skaffold’s automated algorithms.
Remember, even good stocks can and do lose their investment grade status for a myriad reasons, which surface following the release of interim and full year results.
