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.

From a high of more than $5.00 twelve months ago, Webjet’s (WEB) share price was getting close to being attractive to value investors. However following the release of WEB’s interim results the share price shot back up, from $2.50 to $3.16, before settling back at $3.03 as at close of trade on 18 February.
There has been plenty of talk about the arrival of international competitors, namely Priceline.com (PCLN) and Expedia Inc (EXPE), eating into WEB’s market share. Has this news fuelled an over reaction, or is the future profitability of Webjet truly under threat? Is WEB on your watchlist?
