  • Upcoming Week's Ex-Dividend Technical Leaders 0 comments
    May 3, 2014 4:33 PM | about stocks: SPY, DIA

    Baseline Analytics is launching a new service focused on dividend-paying stocks. Over the long-term, dividends have accounted for a significant portion of total equity returns (to see an excellent paper on this subject by Guinness Atkinson Funds, click here).

    On a weekly basis, Baseline Analytics will feature a list of equities that turn ex-dividend in the upcoming week (investors owning the stock at the ex-dividend date will receive the next dividend, which is typically paid within the upcoming 30 days). A minimum 1.0% yield is required to make the initial cut.

    To further refine the list of ex-dividend stocks, Baseline Analytics runs its screening technology to identify those stocks that are technically-attractive. Such indicators include whether the stock is trading above its 50-day moving average, and whether the stock is showing signs of a short-term breakout (i.e. price increasing on higher volume, or an upside crossing of short-term moving averages over longer-term moving averages). In addition, we filtered the list to represent stocks with average daily trading volume of 50,000 shares or more (to avoid thinly-traded stocks with typically-wide bid/ask spreads). These technical indicator filters will help to identify those ex-dividend stocks best poised for further gains.

    See the list below. For subscribers, an updated StockStash Ex-Dividend list will present the most technically-attractive candidates from this week's list. This list is being offered at no cost to our Blog readers for this week and next week's picks, after which time it will be offered to subscribers only.
