Actionable Conclusion (1-10): Analysts Asserted Top Ten U.S. 'Safer' Dividend MoPay Stocks Could Net 4.6% to 17.6% Gains By April, 2019

All ten top-gain 'safe' dividend MoPay stocks (tinted gray in the chart above) were verified as being among the ten highest yielders for the coming year, based on analyst 1 year targets. Thus the yield-based picking strategy for this group, as graded by analyst estimates, proved 100% accurate (a rarity first seen this year).

Projections based on estimated dividend returns from $1000 invested in the thirty highest yielding stocks and their aggregate one year analyst median target prices, as reported by YCharts, created the 2018-19 data points. Note: one year target prices by lone analysts were not applied. Ten probable profit-generating trades projected to April 3, 2019 were:

Corus Entertainment (OTCPK:CJREF) netted $175.66 based on dividends alone less broker fees. The Beta number showed this estimate subject to volatility 46% less than the market as a whole.

Apple Hospitality REIT (APLE) netted $140.16 based on dividends plus a median target price estimate from five analysts less broker fees. A Beta number was not available for APLE.

Orchid Island Capital (ORC) netted $1525.55 based on no target price from analysts, just projected annual dividend less broker fees. The Beta number showed this estimate subject to volatility 68% less than the market as a whole.

AGNC Investment (AGNC) netted $94.41 based on dividends and a median target price estimate from ten analysts less broker fees. The Beta number showed this estimate subject to volatility 6% opposite the market as a whole.

ARMOUR Residential REIT (ARR) netted $77.52 based on a median target price estimate from four analysts, plus dividends less broker fees. The Beta number showed this estimate subject to volatility 46% less than the market as a whole.
