Why CME Should Be In Our Dividend Growth Portfolios
CME Group is a great mix between growth and value as it offers a good yield and long-term (expected) outperformance. Because of its business model, the company is able to generate high free cash flow used to distribute a high yield as its healthy balance sheet needs no attention. The valuation is getting good, and I'm planning on using market weakness to add it to my dividend growth portfolio.
