Since Might 2017, any dividend-paying inventory talked about in a message, e-mail or remark to the writer is honest recreation for a reader favourite itemizing on this sequence of articles. Thus, It’s potential that solely rogues and discontinued, or dreadful, uncertain, dividend points might seem.
These days, readers and different contributors have questioned the intent, function, validity, and usefulness of my each day inventory lists. Most, nonetheless, reward the trouble to kind promising alternatives out of the 1000’s of dividend gives. In spite of everything, yield counts when trying to find dividend winners.
Moreover, my canine catching is, by methodology, a contrarian investing technique and that may rub some traders the improper manner. It’s most helpful for brand spanking new consumers; meant to information readers to new purchases of canines on the dips.
Most precious to the author, nonetheless, are these reader feedback that actually catch errors in my calculations or adjustments in course. Examples just like the reader who missed my “safer” dividend follow-up articles as a result of they include dividend payout ratios.
There are additionally those that catch flagrant fouled inventory lists not synchronized with the information charted. In January a reader found a ‘Safer’ internet achieve chart posing as a Month-to-month Pay chart that even Looking for Alpha Editors missed.
Each month some uncover errant ticker symbols. In January a reader famous SSSS hadn’t paid a Q Dividend since April. And earlier this 12 months, a reader requested how you can determine Rogues within the ReFa/Ro record. The highest ten at the moment are so recognized.
In June excessive yields had been alleged, by one reader, to make sure indicators of Roguishness. Not true, excessive yields are positive indicators of excessive yield, how lengthy the elevated yield lasts, relies upon share value and company administrators. Excessive Beta is probably the most correct measure of Roguishness.
Reader recommendations of purchase and maintain dividend shares are most welcome and positive to be reported on my ReFaRo posts. That’s my final aim, after all, to seek out ten or twenty sure-fire long-term dividend payers bought when their single share costs are decrease than the dividend paid from
$1K invested. Recommendations, please! We’re attempting to foretell the longer term right here, Kings and Aristocrats may maintain up however could also be too previous and feeble to final.
In February, 2022 one reader steered an possibility technique for monthly-paying dividend shares:
“You need to determine the place choices can be found on the Month-to-month dividend shares. What I do is locate mopay shares with choices, I purchase and write coated calls about 6 – 12 months out. I search for a state of affairs the place I acquire the dividend and get my inventory purchased again at a a lot lower cost than I pay, however pocket a premium that makes up the loss. This provides me a dividend increase, since my value is decrease. It is like a assured CD with little threat.”
One other reader steered I dial-back my blatant opinion that high-yield equates to high-risk:
“The article says “excessive dividends are a positive signal of excessive threat.”
It ought to be “excessive dividends is likely to be an indication of excessive threat.”
“If a great inventory/ETF/CEF with a 5% dividend drops just because the entire market dropped, the dividend may get to eight or 9%. I feel that is a good time to purchase as a result of the excessive dividend and low value makes it a low threat funding.”
Multiple author has decried my favoritism for low-priced shares. They particularly dislike my “perfect” shares whose dividend returns from a $1k funding equaling or exceeding share value. A chief instance is Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (SIRI), the satellite tv for pc radio and pandora music catalog proprietor, priced now at $3.61 simply passes my check (of dividends from $1k invested exceeding share value) with a ahead dividend of two.66%! Slightly over $1k funding now buys 277 shares. they usually’ll throw the proprietor a return (from $1k invested) over 7.36 instances the share value. Assuming all issues stay equal, SIRI dividends alone pays again their buy value in 37 years and 6 months (and that assumes the satellite tv for pc radio and subscription music service can survive that lengthy)!
In August a reader stated a $15.40 dividend on a $1K funding was too small. I level out that holders of Apple (AAPL) inventory now garner about $7.00 in dividends from $1K invested.
Final month the next alternate occurred:
Sorry, however I am confused. Why does it matter if a inventory is $1000 per share and pays a $50 dividend, or $20 per share and pays a $1 dividend. Is not that the identical 5% yield?
But when I am following your logic, you prefer to the latter as a result of the overall dividend from $1,000 invested is greater than the person share value, however you would not like the previous as a result of it is not.
Am I lacking one thing?
You’re proper. Each the $1000 inventory paying a $50 dividend and the $20 inventory paying a $1.00 dividend value $20 per greenback of dividend. Thus, neither is preferable since you’ve nonetheless spent $1000 to get $50 in dividends. The distinction is solely within the share rely. One share versus 50. Which might you favor to personal?
The $1k invested exceeding single share value debate rages, in the meantime dividend traders crave a straightforward to find place to begin for his or her preliminary dividend funding.
