  • Hot MLPs In April: 29% Yield, 57% Upside, 72% Net Gain [View article]
    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.

  • Hot MLPs In April: 29% Yield, 57% Upside, 72% Net Gain [View article]
    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.

  • 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.

  • Top Monthly Pay Dividend Dogs: February Lists [View article]
    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.
