  • 10 Top Dividend Aristocrat Dogs Do 5% To 16% April Upsides But 4 Flop [View article]
    Thanks for your efforts on behalf of the process presented, David Baird. As of May I'll have only been refining this process 4 years. Give it another year and try again. I hope to have a guide book published in the next 12 months that will train, license, and deputize dividend dog catchers. You are a candidate.

  • Top Dividend Monthly Pay Dogs: April Listings [View article]
    Thanks Istahler, for the heads up. Full Circle's press release February 23 announced new monthly dividend payouts of $0.035 per month to begin in May. Future lists will reflect the new rate.

  • Hot MLPs In April: 29% Yield, 57% Upside, 72% Net Gain [View article]
    As you well know, Scooter-Pop, there is no restraint on any company (save the firm's own integrity) to prevent it from reducing or curtailing any distribution or dividend. They keep their own books.

    Thanks you or your note of caution, MattZN2. The thin data presented in the ranking system above is provided by the Wall St. analysts tasked with guesstimating 1 year target prices for these MLPs. In truth most should be targeted at amounts well below their current prices. Negative numbers, however, are rare events in the target price game. Look for follow-up articles to come.

    I've danced this distribution vs. dividend nomenclature dance before and understand that an MLP, like a REIT, distributes a portion of profits to unit holders for tax purposes. As you observe, the term "dividend" is used generically in this article to describe any payout to share holders.

    Thanks for the heads up, cubeless. per BBEP press release of 4/1 their monthly distribution will drop to $.04166 of $.50 per share annually. It drops the yield from nearly 13% to under 6.5%. Since dogs are ranked by yield it's half the dog. Of course if price falls, too it may still climb into the top ten.

  • 5 REITs Have 29.03% Edge As Highest-Yield, Lowest-Price, March 27 Dividend Dogs [View article]
    Thanks DAVE22Q for your observation. I agree that the source data may be flawed. It comes directly from assumptions published by the wizards of Wall Street who are (perhaps) paid to rigorously vet all these stocks. In fact, these recommendations should be regarded like weather forecasts that could in fact result in six inches of "partly cloudy" rain or snowfall descending instead.

    I draw your attention to the caveat: "Analysts have historically been 20% to 80% accurate on the direction of change and about 0% to 20% accurate on the degree of the change."

  • 6 Solid Monthly Pay Dividend Dogs Drill 33-118% End-O-March Upsides [View article]
    Thanks Norman Tweed for your comment on PSEC. In general, select monthly paying dividend stocks may be the best contrarian stock plays of 2015.

  • 9.84% Edge For 5 Technology High Yield, Low Price Stocks In March [View article]
    Thanks for asking about PT, Mr_Pete;
    I'm always doubtful including any stock priced under $1. However, the stock is listed and shows up at the top by yield in the tech group every month. PT is probably an issue for reference only until more solid info can be obtained.

  • Alpha 7 Basic Materials Dogs Bear 30% To 80% March Upsides [View article]
    Thanks DrT for your observation. You may find the term ironic. However, the conclusions are actionable. Each conclusion provides an opportunity for action. Any action to be taken is up to the reader. I'm not telling anyone what to do.

    Thanks for the suggestion, CPM! if only HTS paid monthly, it would be listed. I see it as a Qpay.

    Thanks for the heads up, montrachet! Looks like it's been a mostly downhill price slide for the Bogota Columbia based financial product and service firm since its stock was listed last September. I'll add AVAL to the list next week.

  • 10%-37% Upsides From Ten Russell 2000/1000 Combo Index Dogs? [View article]
    Thanks for ferreting out IMS, Robbink. I don't see any dividend dog tracks on the IMS trail, either. I'll cast out the cur until it shows us the money.

    Thanks for your analysis, DRIx. Apparently, FTR, CTL, & WIN could all be painted with that same brush in this crowd. Do you see T in there, too?
