Actionable Conclusions (1-10): Analysts Tag Top Ten MoPay SML Stocks to Net 14.76% to 77.88% Gains To July, 2019
Three of the ten top-yield MoPay stocks (shaded in the chart above) were also among the top ten gainers for the coming year based on analyst 1 year target prices. Thus the yield strategy for this MoPay group, as graded by analyst estimates for July, proved 30% accurate.
The following probable profit-generating trades were determined by estimated dividend returns from $1000 invested in each highest yield stock. Their dividends plus the aggregate one year analyst median target prices, as reported by YCharts, created the 2018-19 data. Ten probable profit-generating trades projected to July 20, 2019 were:

The Dividend Dogs Rule
Stocks earned the "dog" moniker by exhibiting three traits: (1) paying reliable, repeating dividends, (2) their prices fell to where (3) yield (dividend/price) grew higher than their peers. Thus, the highest yielding stocks in any collection became known as "dogs." More specifically, these are, in fact, best called "underdogs".
July's MoPay SML Dividend Dog Data
Three monthly dividend buy and hold lists produced numerous actionable conclusions and several more un-numbered issues. To draw these conclusions and issues, July 20 closing prices and estimated annual dividends were referenced. Monthly pay (MoPay) equity (1) yield and (2) upside potential lists were compared and contrasted against (3) a high yield (and higher risk) MoPay CEICs/ETFs/ETNs list.
Monthly Pay Dividend Qualities
Quarterly, Semi-Annual and Annual dividend investors anxiously await announcements from a firm, fund, or brokerage to learn if their next dividend will be higher, lower, or paid at all. Monthly pay stocks, funds, trusts, and partnerships inform the holder every four and one third weeks by check and/or statement. If the entity reduces or suspends a payment, the holder can sell out of the investment immediately to cut future losses.

Yield Metrics Revealed A Yuge Advantage For Five Lowest Priced High Yield MoPay Equities
Ten monthly pay stock equities were ranked by yield. The following results, verified by YCharts and Yahoo Finance, produced the following charts.
Actionable Conclusions: Analysts Estimated 5 Lowest Priced of Top Ten Highest Yield MoPay Dividend StocksCould Produce (12) 38.46% VS. (13) 23.88% Net Gains from All Tenby July, 2019
$5000 invested as $1k in each of the five Lowest priced stocks of the top ten MoPay group by yield were predicted by analyst 1 year targets to deliver 61.07% more net gain than $5,000 invested as $.5k in all ten. The third lowest priced MoPay dividend stock, Crius Energy [KWH.UN.TO], was predicted to deliver the best net gain of 77.88%.
Lowest priced five MoPay SML dividend stocks, estimated July 20, were: Corus Entertainment [CJR.UN.TO]; Corus Entertainment (OTCPK:CJREF); Crius Energy [KWH.UN.TO]; American Hotel Income (OTC:AHOTF); Prospect Capital [PSEC], with prices ranging from $3.19 to $6.92.
Higher priced five MoPay dividend dogs, estimated July 20, were: Orchid Island Capital Inc. (ORC); American Hotel Income [HOT.UN.TO]; Stellus Capital Investment (SCM); AGNC Investment (AGNC); Global Net Lease (GNL), whose prices ranged from $8.04 to $20.86.
This distinction between five low priced dividend dogs and the general field of ten reflects the "basic method" Michael B. O'Higgins employed for beating the Dow. The same technique, you now see, can also be used to find some rewarding stocks for the MoPay Stock kennel.
The added scale of projected gains based on analyst targets contributed a unique element of "market sentiment" gauging upside potential. It provided a here and now equivalent of waiting a year to find out what might happen in the market. Its also the work analysts got paid big bucks to do.
Caution is advised, however, as analysts are historically 20% to 80% accurate on the direction of change and about 0% to 20% accurate on the degree of the change.
