  • 10 Bad Boy All-Star Dividend Dogs Stalk 17.8% August Upsides [View article]
    Thanks for noticing, Don'tFollow…
    Here is the quote from the EROC press release:
    "On July 22, 2014, the Partnership announced it would not pay a distribution for the second quarter of 2014. As previously stated, management intends to recommend to the Board resuming a quarterly distribution for the third quarter of 2014 (which, if approved by the Board, would be payable in November 2014), subject to the general business climate and the Partnership's specific operations and assets (including assets that may be acquired in potential acquisitions)."
    Forward looking dividends maybe reducible by one quarter or more.

    Yes Zeldan, thanks for your thoughts. Though we all know better, we are all tempted to sneak out for a coke and a big mac on occasion as we abandon our vegetable nutrients.

    Good catch, Eric Rasbold, and I flagged JE's cut to a .46 annual divided and switch to QPay at the time. My gaff for not yet navigating to a master-source database. Shoot the messenger in this case Yahoo! Finance compounded by me. Their .46 dividend equates to an 8.73% yield and drops JE to seventh place from second on the bad boy all star index for August 2014.

  • 6 Decent Dividend Kickers: 12% To 16% July Upsides Top CCC Index [View article]
    Good point, georgebeddoe. Henceforth I shall refer to the Fish tank of Champions, Contenders, and Challengers as a collection and not an index. Thanks for your alarm.

    Thanks for your comet and link, Miz. I like the composite list a lot, even though the new dogs (those paying 5 to 9 years of increasing dividends) tend to bully their way to the top of the list by yield.

    Actually ISD sank all the way to number 42 based on its revised 8.74% yield. The Actionable Conclusion (6) is revised as follows:

    "Projected dividend from 10k invested as $1k in each of the top ten funds and trusts popped up 4% (instead of 9.4%) while aggregate single share price of the top ten over the same period rose 1.4% (instead of 3.4%)."

    "The gap between aggregate single share price of top ten MoPay funds and trusts and their projected dividend expanded to 849% after July (instead of 879%)."

    "As of August 1 the top MoPay fund, trust and preferred dogs showed $153 or 11% (instead of $225 or 17%) more dividend at a $33 or 26% (instead of $126 or 28%) higher aggregate single share price than the MoPay stock top ten."

    Thanks for catching my gaff, mrmedusa. I'll see if the corrected price increase moving ISD out of the top ten (to 17th or so) significantly impacts the charts and submit a correction if necessary.

  • Top 5 REIT Dividend Dogs Pack 7% To 20% July Upsides [View article]
    Thanks for checking my figures, L9. I don't doubly you'll find discrepancies from standard norms. These REIT ratios are mostly filtered using calculations based on actual performance. Because REITs rarely pay the same dividend each month or quarter, I frequently add all the previous year's payouts to use the estimate for future performance. My results a generally more conservative than Yahoo's formulaic approach of multiplying the most recent dividend by four or twelve depending on frequency of payout.

  • Monthly Dividend Stocks: 3 Lists To Buy And Hold In July [View article]
    Hi, The_Babe, thanks for asking about JE. That poor pup fell off the MoPay trail in June. Here's what I noted regarding the passing of JE into the land of QPay: "June marked the passing of Just Energy (NYSE:JE) as a MoPay dog to the QPay zone. Besides changing frequency of dividends, the company chose to sell assets and cut its dividend to save its financial life." Many analysts say the JE asset base is stronger now even though its cash flow is less robust. It's your call.

    Thank you charliezap for sharing your categorization rationale for ARR and ARCP. Not so sophisticated is the categorization published by Yahoo which I use as a default after a preliminary ten category sort from Harry Domash's Dividend Detective site.

  • 6 Monthly Pay Dividend Dogs Flaunt 10% To 49% Late-July Upsides [View article]
    Thanks, hermit 99, for asking about this convoluted language used at the suggestion of Seeking Alpha editors in 2011. The past tense was used because the calculations were made in the past. I prefer present tense for writing because it conveys a sense of immediacy. However, since these articles were intended as reference works, the past tense made sense.
