Track the Comings and Goings of The NYSE International 100 Index Dogs
Over the past nine months five firms have topped off this dividend yield based list. Color code shows: (Yellow) firms listed in first position at least once between January and September 2011; (Cyan Blue) firms listed in tenth position at least once between January and September 2011; (Magenta) firms listed in twentieth position at least once between January and September 2011; (Green) firms listed in thirtieth position at least once between January and September 2011. Duplicates are depicted in color for highest attained rank.
Firms do come and go from the list. This is partly due to NYSE limiting the source list of 100 stocks strictly to the top 100 largest capitalized foreign firms. Notable disappearances from the list over the past nine months are VE, RCI, SSL, REP(which left the NYSE); BNS. Notable additions are PUK; BP; HBC; BBVA; TI, TLK.
September Dividend vs Price Results for NYSE International 100 Index Top Dividend Paying 10
Now in September Telefonica, S.A., Spain's telephone company, tops this list at 8.8% Yield. Annual projected dividend totals for $1000 invested in each stock are within $500 of the aggregate total single share prices and have begun to converge. Dividends vs price in September however are nowhere near the proximity evident the first two months of the year. This trend toward convergence in September signals stock prices rising again which reduces dividend yields and the number of shares buyable with a fixed investment amount.
Perhaps the Annual projected dividend totals for $1000 invested in the top ten of the NYSE International 100 dividend stocks will continue to converge toward the aggregate total single share prices in October. This was a very tame and harmonious list in January and February that crept into higher risk territory in the past six months. In October another review of the 30 NYSE International 100 dividend stocks will be reported. Stay tuned.
