DividendRank Metals Toplist

At sister site Dividend Channel, we screen through our coverage universe of dividend paying stocks each week, 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 ”expensive”).

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 the Metals Channel coverage universe weekly using our proprietary DividendRank formula, and sharing the list of the week’s top ranked metals stocks with our subscribers.

These are the metals stocks our DividendRank system has identified as the top most ”interesting” in the Metals and Mining category … this is meant purely as a research tool to generate ideas that merit further research.
