Whoa! Shaking off the cobwebs on my full-on dividend stock analysis skills here. It’s been quite some time since I’ve independently wrote an article on one dividend stock out there. Given that my busy season has wound down, I though tit would be a great time to shake the rust and really dive into a company that I not only own, but is a highly visible company in the market place. With the tides in the market thus far this year, the increase of rates, the election, etc.. the stock market has never been so unpredictable. With that, we need to have a sense of security to the cash we have saved in order to deploy the appropriate capital to a company. In terms of security – here is dividend stock that is of high quality as it relates to network and data security… Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO).
If you want to talk about how fast time flies, here is a perfect example. I was prepared to re-visit a dividend stock analysis that I thought I performed over Realty Income (“O”) a couple of quarters ago. When I looked at the date on the original analysis…it was November 2015. I cannot believe 12 months have flown by that quickly…where has time gone? Even though I have reviewed the company in the past, I thought it would be a good idea to update the stock analysis I performed considering the recent pullback in price, the fact that they were one of the four stocks on my October Watch List, and the company’s recent earnings release. A lot can change over 12 months, I think we can all attest to that in some capacity. So let’s re-run Realty Income through our stock screener.
Today is a stock analysis in an industry not traditionally covered by most from articles that I read and see. Everyday we put clothes on, go to outlet malls and department stores to look at the new fashion that is available and what new styles are “in season”. What about if you could own a company that makes these items that the majority of the public wear, day in and day out. Also, what if they also paid you a very solid dividend? Let’s check this out…
Fun time of the month! I have spent my Sunday morning researching and finding stocks that I like, and heck – some may be the exact same from last month’s article. What matters is that these are attractive, great dividend yielders, easy businesses to understand and are staple names to all! I was very excited the market has took a turn over the last 30 days and have started to open up more value for us dividend investors. Let’s see who is on my stock watch list!
A few weeks ago, I ran a stock screener and published my August dividend stock watch list. That screener had a new entrant that seemed to check most of our boxes for investing, Cardinal Health (CAH). Headquartered in the buckeye state, I instantly had flashbacks to college recruiting events since they sponsored A LOT of events at college. The stock price continues to fall, so I wanted to perform a detailed analysis on Cardinal Health before committing to buy this healthcare company. Here it is, my dividend stock analysis over Cardinal Health!
Surprising title and article, right? I would be stunned to see a watch list, as well, if I were a reader, given the stock market has continued to hit highs. Just went you think they are heading for a few days in a row of red, the rug gets taken from underneath you. Bert and I have had endless conversations over the last week and it’s time to talk about what entities are on my radar. What companies are out there, that somehow have undervaluation written somewhere on them? Let’s dive in and see.
With the stock market still continuing it’s position at very high points – it has left us dividend value investors to find little-to no room to make a move. There have been flashes of companies taking a few steps back, such as Target (TGT) and Apple (AAPL), but what other companies are out there that may have not been in the public news, but that still look attractive right now? Well, I received a package in the mail the other day and had a conversation about what industries may be benefiting from low oil prices? What about shipping companies? Better yet… what about United Parcel service (UPS)? Let’s find out!
