  • 5 Fab Monthly Pay Dividend Dogs Drum 51%-118% Late March Upsides [View article]
    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.

  • 22.92% Boon From 5 S&P 500 Highest-Yield, Lowest-Price March Stocks [View article]
    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?

    Thanks for your comments and concerns, Norman Tweed. These are exciting times for buy and hold investors. For such marathon sledding, it pays to build a team of strong dogs.

  • Ace Dividend 5-Star Dogs Hound 6% To 20% February Upsides And 9% To 26% Net Gains [View article]
    Thanks for your comments and questions, TBL. Dog strategists buy and sell once per year. Traditionally that happens in January. The articles presume the pickup period can begin anytime. This is an all-star collection combining yield, momentum, upside, and regular dividend increases. It is debatable whether KMI is a decent substitute for KMP which held the five stars prior to December. Apparently REITs are the place to go for aggressive and regular increasing payouts and these bubbled to the top of the heap.

    Thanks 1caflash! If you're going to buy a REIT it pays to get one that pays dividends monthly. Especially if you like to drip the payout.

  • Top Monthly Pay Dividend Dogs: February Lists [View article]
    Thanks for asking about dividends keeping pace with price valuations, tikigod18. Closed end fund dividends keep pace with earnings and this year, apparently PSF earnings were good and an extra dividend was declared. Prices, as you know, can frequently diverge from rational correlations with earnings.

    Thanks for asking about PSF, doublestrike55! It's not the PSF isn't tracked. It's a closed end fund and is on my FTP tracking list of Funds, Trusts, & Preferred equities. Since I publish only the top 60 by yield the cutoff point is always somewhere between 8.5% & 9% by yield. This month PSF placed 82nd with a 7.83% yield.

    Thanks for asking, ron3637;
    The closest I've come recently to doing a best of breed compilation is a monthly look at Sector leaders:

    In dog metrics, remember, yield rules!

    Thanks for asking about Seadrill, alterami. There are two Seadrills. One (SDRL) cut its dividend in December. This one, (SDLP) has persisted.

  • 14.21% Advantage For 5 Financial Highest-Yield, Lowest-Price March Stocks [View article]
    Thank you for your sharp eyes, william12. I have no clue where the $10.61 share price for CMO came from. (Another planet?) However, it was not from this year. The last time CMO price was in the $10 range was spring of 2009. At the correct $11.97 share price, CMO would not have made the top ten by yield nor the top ten by upside or net gain. Nevertheless, the results for this article's five featured finds would not change. My apologies for my error. I'll fire the proof-reader, (me) again!

  • 32.23% Edge To 5 Monthly Dividend, Highest-Yield, Lowest-Price, End Of February Stocks [View article]
    Thanks for asking about the intent of this article, TexasRTD.

    The desire to find the best bargains in dividend stocks is what drives the weekly reiteration of these MoPay dog lists. Finding the lowest possible market price or bottom for these puppies may be what keeps readers reading.

    I know whenever I buy one of these pups, I'm trusting that the high yield is signaling an opportunity to buy at a point where the future dividends will at least sustain themselves, preferably increase annually. I also want the stock price to surge immediately after my buy order is confirmed.

    What really happens, however, is entirely up to Mr. Market.

  • 31.7% Advantage For 5 Monthly Paying, Highest Yield, Lowest Price, Late-February Stocks [View article]
    Thanks for your question, steve46. I think payout as a percent of profit is an excellent test to run when evaluating these high yield, low price puppies for investment. One might be able to detect a level of risk by means of the suggested calculation.

    Thanks for the heads up, bruce.cameron. I looked up the press release. ARP announced a $0.1083 per share distribution for January. The December distribution was $0.197 per share.

    Thanks for commenting, Hardog. High yield frequently culls out scary financial reports. Many a knife has fallen from these lists. Beware.
