About The Dividend Channel Premium Newsletter
Every day Dividend Channel screens through our coverage universe of dividend paying
stocks, and we look at a variety of data — dividend yield, book value, quarterly earnings —
and compare it to the stock's trading data to come up with certain calculations about
profitability and about the stock's valuation (whether we think it looks ''cheap'' or
History has shown that the bulk of the stock market's returns are delivered by dividends,
and so we pay special attention to dividend history. And of course, only consistently
profitable companies can afford to keep paying dividends, so profitability is of critical
importance. Dividend investors should be most interested in researching the strongest
most profitable companies, that also happen to be trading at an attractive valuation —
maybe there is a company-specific reason causing the stock to be ''cheap'' or maybe the
entire sector is taking a hit, but whatever the reason, we think there is great value in
ranking our coverage universe daily using our proprietary DividendRank formula, and
sharing those lists with our subscribers.
As a subscriber to the Dividend Channel Premium Newsletter, you will
receive our daily DividendRank lists in the following categories:
- S.A.F.E. Domestic & International Dividend Stocks —
To make our S.A.F.E. lists, a stock must display these qualities: S. Solid return — hefty yield
and strong DividendRank characteristics; A. Accelerating amount — consistent dividend
increases over time; F. Flawless history — never a missed or lowered dividend; E. Enduring
— at least two decades of dividend payments for domestic stocks; at least a half decade
- Socially Responsible Dividend Stocks —
To make our Socially Responsible list, a stock had to be recognized by prominent asset
managers as being a socially respons ible investment, through analysis of social and
environmental criteria. Environmental criteria include considerations like the
environmental impact of the company's products and services, as well as the company's
efficiency in terms of its use of energy and resources. Social criteria include elements
such as human rights, child labor, corporate diversity, and the company's impact on society
— for instance, taken into consideration would be business activities tied to weapons,
gambling, tobacco, and alcohol.
- Top Ranked With Recent Insider Buying — There's an old saying
on Wall Street that there are many different reasons to sell a stock, but only one reason to buy:
the expectation that you will make money. So when top management or directors of a company take their
hard-earned cash and buy their own company's stock in the open market, investors are wise to take
notice. This DividendRank list considers only those stocks that have experienced insider buying within
the past 180 days.
