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.

Is a trend appearing amongst casino and entertainment stocks?
Over the weekend full year results for Echo Entertainment Group (EGP), Tatts Group (TTS) and Crown Limited (CWN) flowed through Skaffold. Echo’s Skaffold Score improved from B3 (based on the company’s interim results) to B2. B2 is one of Skaffold’s preferred scores. Tatts Group (TTS) rose from C4 to B3 and Crown’s improving business performance lifted its Skaffold Score from A4 to A3.
TTS and EGP are trading at premiums of more than 60% to Skaffold’s 2014 intrinsic value estimates. CWN is trading at a 40% premium. Whilst the intrinsic value of all three businesses is forecast to rise at an impressive rate over the next two years, looking at the Skaffold Line chart of each stock it appears the market has already factored in this future growth.

While often overlooked by investors when analysing fundamentals, there’s no better insight into what’s left for you as a shareholder in a business once it’s paid all its bills than an analysis of cash flow. When it comes to assessing the investment quality of a company's cash flow, you should be attracted to those with sufficient money in the bank to fund their operations and produce an ongoing Funding Surplus. The greater a company’s Funding Surplus the more likely it is to avoid excessive borrowing, expand its business, pay dividends and withstand any economic downturns.
You need to be wary of well-known large-caps with unhealthy cash positions which may still attract uninformed investors due to their size. High profile stocks with large debt and poor cash flow – which contributes to poor Skaffold Scores - include: Sonic Healthcare (SHL), Seven Group Holdings (SVW), James Hardie Industries (JHX), Toll Holdings (TOL), Oil Search (OSH), Woodside Petroleum (WPL), Leighton Holdings (LEI), Asciano (AIO), Duet Group (DUE), Tabcorp Holdings (TAH), Transurban (TCL), Brambles (BXB), Origin Energy (ORG), SP AusNet (SPN), APA Group (APA) and Sydney Airport Holdings (SYD).

The A$150 billion scaling back of expansion plans by Australian resources projects over the past year is having a devastating impact on mining services companies, and government projections suggest the mood of austerity sweeping the sector is here to stay. Official data released this week by government commodities forecaster, the Bureau of Resources and Energy Economics (BREE), suggests that investment in Australian resources projects could tumble by around 75 per cent over the next five years if the big miners continue to slash spending on new projects and expansions.
This outcome would see committed investment on resource projects fall from A$268 billion in 2012 to A$25 billion in 2018. BREE attributes much of this decline to too few high-value projects progressing through the investment pipeline to offset the completion of the LNG projects currently under construction. According to BREE’s research, austerity measures by mining heavyweight BHP Billiton (BHP) will see its spending fall by $4 billion over the next year, while rival Rio Tinto (RIO) has savings of $5 billion in its sights by late 2014.
What does this mean for mining services businesses?
