In all, the Nasdaq 100 Watch List of last week lost -6.58% as compared to the Nasdaq 100 index which lost a total of -7.56%. As with our Dividend Achiever Watch List, the smaller losses and larger gains make the Watch Lists a good place to start investigating your next investment opportunities. Naturally, we expect that all investment decisions should be done with an eye for selectivity and a willingness to harbor a lot of patience.
New on our Nasdaq Watch List this week is Cintas (CTAS) which is also a Dividend Achiever. Cintas (CTAS) will be closely followed in the days to come since the company has increased its dividend every year for 27 years in a row. One caveat regarding the CTAS dividend is that it appears to be paid only once a year around the month of February. This means that poorly timed purchases can result in large losses without being offset by quarterly dividend payments.
