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.

While Nine’s IPO offer documents are yet to be lodged, the market expects Nine’s float to proceed mid December. If the success of recent floats, including insurance broker Steadfast Group (SDF) and fertility clinic operator Virtus Health (VRT) are anything to go by, the timing of Nine’s float looks about as good as it gets.
Nine’s metropolitan free-to-air TV advertising market rose just above 9% in July which, due largely to election advertising, delivered the best monthly performance in three years. Nine’s share of the market rose 11.6% in July from a year ago to 37.7%, in part due to the Ashes cricket series, which helped it win market share from (number three-ranked) rival Ten Network.
Due to its prominence as a household brand, the Nine float will capture broad investors interest. Due to its sheer size some fund managers will be unable to ignore it.
If you’re serious about participating in the Nine IPO, we’ve put together a checklist of the float details need to pay specific attention to.

The Australian dollar dipped below US92¢ on June 24 – its lowest point since September 2010 – and mounting projections that it could fall to around US85¢ within two years heralds mixed blessings for stocks on either side of the currency divide.
So if you subscribe to the view that a falling Australian dollar is (among other things) the inevitable by-product of waning foreign investor appetite for $A assets, you also need to ask what this means for the stocks you currently own, and how you can profit from it.
The correlation between the Australian dollar and share price movements – and interest rates, for that matter – has declined somewhat in recent years. Nevertheless, when it comes to identifying the most likely winners and losers within a falling Australian dollar environment, there are some useful guiding principles that you as an investor should understand.
