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 low growth environment likely to continue for some time, investors chasing double-digit growth need to look beyond cyclicals wired to the struggling Australian economy, and refocus on sectors displaying what are known as ‘secular growth opportunities’. For those unfamiliar with the term, ‘secular’ refers to companies with growth upside that’s less reliant on macroeconomic drivers and more hitched to company or sector-specific dynamics.

Skaffold’s Funding Surplus / (Gap) shouldn’t be underestimated. Being able to see, at a glance, if a company spends more money than it earns can be a revelation.
The very best companies consistently produce a Funding Surplus. Even if they have a few bad years, top notch stocks bonce back into Funding Surpluses relatively quickly.
Finding companies that produce plenty of cash, and consistently end each year with excess money in the bank and a Funding Surplus, are now even easier to find in Skaffold.

Since first flagging Titan Energy Services (TTN) as a stock on an impressive growth trajectory in August 2013, the company’s share price has been on a roller coaster ride.
TTN was trading at $2.27 when Skaffold crunched its 2013 full year results through its automated algorithms, and upgraded the company’s Skaffold Score from B3 to A2. By late October the share price hit $3.71 before retreating back to $2.07, as at 19 May 2014 close of trade. It was $2.32 on 12 May 2014. TTN’s share price isn’t for the feint hearted.
Today Titan Energy Services issued a trading update, and announced its win of new contracts. Here’s a snapshot of the good and bad disclosed in today’s announcement.

Are they positioned to continue delivering growth or do their global counterparts represent more attractive opportunities? We went inside Skaffold Global to find out.
Also consider this: you won’t find any global tech companies in the ASX 10. Pharmaceuticals, big oil and household products also fail to feature in our local market. To gain exposure to these global industries, you must expand your universe to the US and Europe.
