Today I am back with a deep look into international stocks that could and should be added to your own version of the Ultimate Sustainable Dividend Portfolio. I started off by looking at some of the top listed ADR’s in terms of dividends while staying away from pink sheet stocks! I also removed stocks that did not have a price of $5, etc.

That helped me reach a number of stocks that certainly have solid potential for greatness. Looking at yield is clearly not enough but it does provide a good starting point. Why am I so motivated in acquiring international dividend stock picks? Because it provides added diversification and a stronger portfolio which is critical in these very difficult economic times. It will end up making a significant difference in the success of my passive income objectives.

You can take a look at the top 50 from my list here:

Anyway, back to the subject, here are those 6 stocks:)

    FYI, not exactly sure of the difference between BBL and BHP, I’ll need to look into it!

    They are the same company. I believe BBL is based in the UK which has a tax treaty with the US & Canada. If you hold this one in your retirement account there is no withholding tax.

    The same rules apply if you want to hold Unilever (UL vs UN) or Royal Dtch Shell (RDS.A vs RDS.B). UL and RDS.B are also based in the UK.

    FWIW: Comprehensive integration of these single equity companies can be found in and acquired by combining such ETF products as NYC-30 Components, EEB-7 Components, XGC-6 Components, VXUS-21 Components. There are others but hopefully all get the idea of how to construct a similar portfolio with just a couple of ETFS.

    How come Seadrill has been left of the list…?

    @Hans – I believe it is because the payout ratio is a bit over 100% right now
