  • 10 Low Leverage, Dividend Stocks With Impressive Top-Line Growth [View article]

    You are correct in that the dividend yield is incorrect. We are working to have this fixed and we apologize for the typo.

    When looking at the topic of Beta both Yahoo:Finance and Google:Finance list different betas. Having your CFA designation we're sure you understand Beta can be calculated in more than one way and that it will inherently change over time due to changes in volatility.

    Finally, you did not reference the correct equation for Financial Leverage. Instead, you incorrectly provided the Debt/Equity ratio. We know it was an honest mistake. The Financial Leverage Ratio is as follows:

    =Average Total Assets/Average Total Equity

    The link below is to the CFA glossary relative to Financial Leverage:

    We have also seen Financial Leverage calculated in more than one form but this is the way the CFA institute views it. We thought the link would be a good reference for users in general.

    Thank you for pointing out the typo and have a great day.

  • 10 Expensive Dividend Stocks Riding On Bullish Momentum [View article]

    The financial markets are constantly changing & to expect these performance numbers to never change isn't realistic. Further, given the fact that the market is swinging well over 100+ points on the Dow 30 on almost any given day only cements the point that performance numbers can and will inherently change quickly by their very nature. Finally, articles are not reviewed and posted in literal real time on SA so there may be some slight information delays. Thank you for understanding.

    Great question. There is no exact number but generally anything greater than 10% raises some type of flag for the better or the worse in our view. Food for thought.

  • 10 Overvalued Dividend Stocks With Poor Liquidity [View article]

    You bring up a good point in that RGNC is an MLP, which makes it more unique. Still, this is a business plain and simple. Unique tax benefits and distribution criteria to shareholders do not change the fact that the firm has short-term obligations and long-term liabilities that must be handled. What happens if they have some type of accident at a facility? They can't just shrug their shoulders and say "hey this won't affect our liquidity as a firm, our dividend payments, and or impact us adversely because we're an MLP."

    Based on our information the Payout Ratio (TTM) for for RGNC is 970.54. Our understanding of the Payout Ratio is as follows:

    Payout Ratio - Trailing 12 Months

    Payout ratio is calculated by dividing dividends declared for the indicated 12 month period by net income for the same period of time.

    Thus what RGNC is currently yielding and what it has generated as a company in the last twelve months relate. As far as we can tell trailing earnings will not cover the yield illustrated. Of course they can take out debt or some other sort of financing to pay the current yield. As with many MLP's the dividend is often variable and contingent on what the firm earns, commodity pricing risk, and other variables.

    We are much more comfortable with BPT & SJT relative to MLP's. If this was simply a EPS topic then every MLP by this logic should have an astronomical PE ratio but they don't. Plus, plenty of companies that aren't MLP's play the "tax game" just as well. GE & Google come to mind. Last, to write off standard financial health metrics on any company simply because of a tax classification (MLP's) or unique characteristics would be short sighted.

  • Is Zillow (Z) overvalued? Sure, says Howard Lindzon, just like Amazon was "overvalued" (at $430M!) at their IPO. Yet Z "is not a bubble stock. It's a proxy for the disruption that entrepreneurs feel was needed in the real estate market. Take an hour off from from freaking out at the valuation."  [View news story]
    Comparing Zillow's potential to Amazon. com is a little far fetched. Amazon had the ability to morph into the ultimate online retailer that was never truly defined by one category or industry. Amazon now offers payment services and has successfully leveraged the power of the online entrepreneur. Zillow on the other hand is real estate only and far more limited in scope by default. Mortgage marketplace was a great idea but still part of real estate. The idea that Zillow could morph into something completely different years down the line like Amazon isn't an easy to sell. Just imagine if Amazon still only sold books...stock probably wouldn't be so hot. Then again all boats rise at high tide and Zillow maybe one of these boats.

  • More on Nokia's (NOK) earnings: Despite the quarterly loss, CEO Stephen Elop says the firm is "making better-than-expected progress toward our strategic goals" and has a clear strategy to address concerns about its product competitiveness. For some reason, investors appear to be convinced; shares +4.3%.  [View news story]

    You make a pretty good point. Wouldn't be surprising to see a pop so close to the bottom but with it going against Apple this just isn't a name to hold for the long-term. For trading purposes it could be a different story.
