  • Income Growth Model Portfolio Updated For 2012
    I finally rebalanced my DG Income-Growth portfolio. It has had the best performance (total return and risk-adjusted) of my three models and versus the SPY and SDY. 2/3 of the stocks are the same, just rebalanced the dollar amounts. Most of those replaced still pass all of my screens, but their yields have fallen due to price gains (not a bad problem). Overall, a 4.2% yield and a 0.73 beta, so I expect to see continuation of the low volatility in weekly returns, which should be appealing to income-oriented investors.

  • New Analysis Of Dividend Cutters

    I have a new article out today that looks at what happened to dividend cutters from 2007-2010. This is a followup to my original article "After the Dividend Cut". For some reason, it is under Quick Picks, so hopefully that gets corrected so that the Income Investing Strategy group can find it.


    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

  • More Data on -20% Gap Signal
    I published a follow-up article to my original research on a potential price change signal for dividend cuts.  Looks like the signal is better at predicting future losses, though it does flag some cutters or stocks overdue for a dividend increase.
