  • 10 Stocks Dumped by the Smart Money During the Most Recent Quarter [View article]

    Yep, guilty as charged. Should have factored it in (it's been a long week). I just checked the rest of the list, and ETFC and FBC are the only companies that did a reverse split.

  • 13 High Yield Dividend Stocks Being Chased by Smart Money [View article]
    Just a quick correction regarding FTR:

    The article incorrectly shows FTR with a $1.00/annum dividend (note that we sourced this dividend data from Yahoo Finance, which had the wrong number).  On May 13, 2009, FTR announced their annual rate would be $0.75 after their transaction with Verizon closed, which it did on July 1, 2010.

    The correct dividend yield for FTR is $0.75 / $7.66 = 9.79%.

    Apologies for the confusion.

  • 20 Undervalued Companies Boosting Earnings Guidance [View article]
    Hi all,

    Yes, we do not allow our analysts to hold any of the stocks we write about. Also, we never write about companies we have a relationship with. We're very serious about unbiased, independent research.

  • 20 Rallying Stocks Being Targeted by Short Sellers [View article]
    As we mentioned, short-sellers seem to think these rallies will reverse, but the inevitable short-covering might push these stocks even higher. It's a screen that you can use as a starting point for your own analysis...

  • 20 Most Undervalued S&P 500 Stocks Based on Analyst Target Price [View article]
    BP, last trade at $31.83, target price at $55.00, currently trading at a -42.13% discount to the average analyst target price (based on survey of 12 analysts). BP isn't part of the S&P 500, which is why it didn't show up in the screen...

  • 4 Stocks Snapped Up by Insiders Ahead of Earnings This Week [View article]
    Yes, at first glance the insider buying doesn't seem significant. But when you consider the parameters of the screen, these companies deserve closer attention.

    We started a screen on 200 companies with market caps above $300M reporting this week. We then crunched numbers on insider buying, and these are the ONLY companies that had net purchases over the last 6 months.

    In other words, out of all the companies reporting this week (market caps > $300M), these are the only ones that didn't have net insider selling.

    We thought that was important enough for an article. As always, we're not "pumping stocks" - we're trying to come up with interesting screens that you can use as a starting point for your own analysis.

    Hope that clarifies the purpose of this article.

  • 7 High Yield, Low Beta Stocks With Significant Free Cash Flows [View article]
    Hi IndioBravo,

    Thanks for your comment. The dividend yields are sourced from Finviz. They might deviate slightly from Yahoo Finance, since they're sourcing forward dividend estimates from a different group of analysts.

    And the ratios we mention above are not payout ratios. We are referring to levered free cash flow as a percentage of market cap.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi burnintoo,

    Thanks for your message. We spend a lot of time building these screens, and hopefully they offer useful starting points to investors to do their own research. As far as we know, there aren't many screening tools that can combine technical, fundamental and sentiment data--we're always trying to combine new, interesting data points...

    We also track the performance of each screen, and often recreate the most successful strategies for our users.

    What kind of content do you prefer to read? Looking forward to your thoughts--always trying to help our followers find good ideas...

    The Kapitall Team

  • 5 Quality Stocks Seeing Significant Institutional Buying [View article]
    Good point - I just did a check with Audit Integrity (a forensic accounting firm), and it turns out that most of these stocks have very aggressive accounting practices. The scores in brackets represent values out of 100...

    LLEN: Very Aggressive Accounting Practices (Delinquent filer)

    SAY: No rating

    LPHI: Aggressive (23)

    GFRE: Average (59)

    QSII: Aggressive (25)

    I guess the real question is why institutional investors are loading up on these names...

  • Dividend Stocks With No Debt, High Yields And Under $15 [View article]
    @ART005, price is psychological. Though 1 share of AAPL before the split with worth 7 shares after, people are more likely to get into a position for $10 than they are for $70.
