Federated Strategic Value Dividend Fund SVAAX
Seeks to provide high and rising income by investing in high-quality dividend-paying companies.


Fund managers build a portfolio of 35-45 stocks ranked according to their dividend yield, dividend growth, strong financials and performance regardless of market conditions.


Historically, companies that pay dividends have less volatile stock prices than those that don't and may help cushion portfolio downside by paying returns in cash.

Investment Approach

We view ourselves as investors in businesses, analyzing the long-term cash flow and dividend growth forecast of each company. We also assess their management's ability and inclination to pay and increase dividends. Based on this diligent research, we carefully select high-dividend-paying stocks that offer the potential for reliable monthly income, broad diversification among income sectors and inflation protection through both dividend and equity growth opportunities.
Views are as of 1-23-2018 and are subject to change based on market conditions and other factors. These views should not be construed as a recommendation for any specific security or sector.
We strive to identify areas that are fertile for the dividend collector: consumer staples, telecom services, utilities, pharma, REITs, pass-thru-entities.

Mutual funds are subject to risks and fluctuate in value.

International investing involves special risks including currency risk, increased volatility, political risks, and differences in auditing and other financial standards.

There are no guarantees that dividend-paying stocks will continue to pay dividends. In addition, dividend-paying stocks may not experience the same capital appreciation potential as non-dividend-paying stocks.

Because the fund may allocate relatively more assets to certain industry sectors than others, the fund's performance may be more susceptible to any developments which affect those sectors emphasized by the fund.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
