Dividend Investing and the years end. Where is your portfolio ending up?
Is it anywhere near what you had planned from the beginning of the year?
What are you plans to make 2016 a better year for your portfolio.
Did you at least make double digit returns?
Dividend Capturing and Dividend Investing has gotten some mixed review over the last few years.
I always say... "look at the facts"... "Look at the numbers". Numbers and facts don't lie, they are what they are. Computer software does exactly what it is programmed to do.
My Dividend Investing software is designed to look through the Dividend Stock data stream and pick out certain bits of information, do a little fancy math and come out with a conclusion. That conclusion is either right or not. We take this information and make a few trades with it.
Dividend stock picks for the end of the year. How do you want to end the year? With a winner of course... Well at least I do. I'm pretty confident in saying that I think everyone wants to end the year on a high note.
There doesn't seem to be very active check writing this week, but can be attributed to end of the year, New Years celebration, Christmas and boxing day for you Canadians. I'm sure there are a few other holiday celebrations in there too.
Dividend Investing goes all years round and never stops, it has been going on since companies first started sharing their profits in 1602. The only difference tis as compared to the 51 weeks of the year, is this weeks list comes the biggest holiday seasons, so there are not many trading days in the last week of December.
How do you choose to invest in a dividend stock on a week like this week? 433 Companies are paying out dividends this week alone. There are some definite problems with a list this size, where do you even begin? Monday and Thursday the choice was easier with only 52 companies to choose from (26 Monday, 26 Thursday).
Is the size of the dividend the most important factor? Or can it be that the annual yield is the driving force in making the right choice for your portfolio? What are your objectives when it comes to investing in the stock market or in a dividend stock?
If you have been following any of my past posts', you would know that I like the Dividend Capturing Strategy (buy stock before ex-date, sell for profit after date of record). Entering 433 companies into my dividend stock software was time consuming but it definitely cut my time in choosing the right stock for me and my objectives. The most important factor for choosing the right stock for the dividend capturing strategy for me is... How many times over the last 10 years has this companies stock done exactly what I wanted it to do? To find out this information, I created some dividend stock picking software that have a few complex mathematical equations designed to cut my research time and allow me make better decisions in my dividend investing.
You too might want to think about taking a look at what I have been doing.
Just out of high school I decided to be self employed, after running a successful manufacturing business I had a problem of making more money than I knew what to do with. I started investing, after 23 years of investing I now want to share my strategy with a select few that want an extra edge in their own investing.
