    Thanks for you update, Norman Tweed. I trust that your dividend stream from T and VZ will indeed swell for the next few years.

    Thank you Norman Tweed, for your comments about those three bad news dogs. They remind me of the old Wall St. trader adage: "Buy on the bad news, sell on the good news." That may be news to those who believe that financial news actually moves prices.

  • 5 Likely Creators Of A Next Big Thing Average 3.8% February Upsides [View article]
    Thank you, varan, that is priceless. Leave it to the kids at MIT to prank the entire scientific community. (Not that the IEEEE could ever see it coming.) Of course, no such thing could befall the financial press.

    Thank you Randall James for reading and commenting on this post. I agree with you that the comment and upside price guess of one analyst is about as valuable as the noise from one hand clapping. The fact remains that within the range of 3 to 9 analysts, which I say the rage for a valid 1 year mean target estimate, there are three choices of equities. A follow-up article in May will assess the tracks of these five memory chip makers at the one quarter year mark. Stay tuned.

  • 5 Basic Materials Dogs Stalk 20% To 34% February Upsides [View article]
    Thank you sethmcs for distinguishing the unique characteristics of "dividends" in the form of "return of capital" from LPs. In the financial sector, REITs also avoid taxation by retuning profits to shareholders in their distributions. Hence I include the advisory note at the end of each dividend dog article stating: "These gains as reported do not factor-in any tax problems resulting from distributions. Consult your tax advisor regarding the source of "dividends" from any investment."

    Thanks kyanaron for your comment and sharing your recent purchase. I'm inclined to believe that the entire financial sector, not just real estate. is the riskiest of all nine. I was really impressed that the NASDAQ index which excludes financial firms had the best predictability among analysts this past 12 months.

    Thanks Norman Tweed for regularly reading and commuting on these financial dogs. Lets hope Mr. Market agrees with the analysts pegging that additional 12.8% upside for MTGE.

    Thanks, sofas, for asking about stocks that drop off the dog lists. Since yield (dividend / price) is the main driver of the listings, two things can happen to cause yield to plummet and take a dog all or part of the main list of 30: (1) Price can increase to a point where the projected yield % is reduced enough to take the stock out of the top ten, the top 20 or even the top 30. (2) The company can reduce or stop dividends.

    As for analyst one year target pricing, those estimates are revised monthly so analysts can increase of decrease their estimates. However, more frequently stock prices rise to a point where the mean target price estimate is no longer has significant upside to be listed in the top ten.

  • 3 Ultra Utilities Dogs Generated 12% To 22% Valentine Upsides [View article]
    But confusion is the soul of wit, LarryMelman. I think you said that. Otherwise there would be no situation comedy. Nor would Shakespeare have used disguises to set up his biggest laugh lines.

  • 3 Ultra Utilities Dogs Generated 12% To 22% Valentine Upsides [View article]
    Thanks for catching me trying to be too cute, LarryMelman. The top ten utilities dogs by yield showed a bullish pattern based on total price for 1 share each of the ten rising 1.5% last month while aggregate annual dividend from $10k invested as $1k in each stock dropped 5.7%. The Dow dogs price rose while dividends also rose which makes their condition neither bearish nor bullish which is a bothersome situation I call a dither. I trust this either clarifies or confuses you more. Please advise and I'll attempt another tack.
