Gaurav Sharma is an editor and research analyst for Income Investors.
If you’re interested in dependable income, Gaurav believes there’s one key term you need to know: “Global Dividend Growers” (GDGs). GDGs are some of the biggest, most profitable companies in the world. Their entrenched position translates into steady revenues, thick profit margins, and robust cash flows. This allows them to produce market beating returns and growing, oversized dividends year after year.
These stocks are the “Ivy League Elites” of the market. Dozens of the companies on this list have paid rising dividends for decades, even through the financial crisis of 2008. Many long-time stockholders are collecting triple-digit yields based on the price of their original purchases.
Gaurav holds a B.A. in Business Economics from York University. Prior to joining Income Investors, he worked as a trader for TD Bank and in private wealth management for Canaccord Genuity. When he’s not digging through corporate filings, Gaurav enjoys playing basketball, volleyball, and tennis.
Brian is an editor and research analyst for Income Investors. He combs the investment universe for outstanding businesses that throw off huge amounts of cash.
His investment philosophy is simple: stick to companies with durable, competitive advantages, rock-solid financials, and talented management teams—then wait patiently to buy them at a reasonable price. The magic of compounding will take care of the rest.
It’s the most proven formula for building long-term wealth, so he figures, “Why mess with what works?”
Prior to joining Income Investors, Brian spent 10 years researching and writing about stocks for one of the largest multimedia financial services companies in the world. He has also served as a tech-sector analyst for the world’s largest crowd-sourced platform for investment research.
Brian has a BA from Western University and holds the Chartered Financial Analyst designation. When he’s not digging into financial statements, Brian enjoys spending time with his family (wife and little daughter), playing sports (if you consider golf a real sport), and cheering on Toronto sports teams (no matter how painful).
