* Dr Don Hamson, Managing Director of Plato Investment Management, says one of the keys to successful income investing is to avoid the 'dividend traps'. Not only can the traps reduce income but they often result in material loss of capital as the price of the security also falls. Hamson says some of the red flags he looks at are 1) Steadily falling share prices, which artificially inflate the yield 2) Companies where the underlying business is facing structural and competitive challenges which may place future earnings under pressure.
