  • Monthly Paying Dividend Dogs: 3 Lists To Buy And Hold For August [View article]
    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.

    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.

    Thanks for your comment on PSEC, Norman Tweed. I'll be curious to see whether yield, 1 yr. upside, net gain, or momentum was the best indicator of success (or failure) for these ten dogs when I tally results in February and next August.

    If you follow the adage to buy in September and sell in May, you will pick up more momentum in your dividend trades, StockBug2012. The professionals will be back in charge of the Wall St. wiz kids after their vacations in the Hamptons are over. Stay tuned next week for my MoPay three lists to buy and hold for August. There you will also find the micro cap stocks in: 1. Stocks by yield (20/55); 2. Stocks by price upside (10/20) & downside (1/20); 3. Funds, Trusts & Preferreds (FTP) by yield (10/60).

    Thank you for commenting about the power of the Dow pack, Stephen Mayo. The power of the pack is in the dog and the power of the dog is in the pack. These MoPay dogs have a unique power of more frequent payouts from an amalgam of sectors one of which, Utilities, is not represented on the Dow. A dog is just a dog only if it succumbs to being a house pet.

    I admire your optimism, ReaperLynx. The $15.33 mean target was set by analysts early around July 18 before the news of an environmental referendum in Santa Barbara contributed to a sudden price drop for ROYT shares. It may take months for analysts to reassess their estimates based on ROYT intrinsic value possible election outcomes. Mr Market will also have a say.
