DividendRank Energy Toplists

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

These are the energy stocks our DividendRank system has identified as the top most ”interesting” in the Energy, and Utilities categories … this is meant purely as a research tool to generate ideas that merit further research.

SPONSORED AREAOil and Gas Income Portfolio

The Oil & Gas Income Portfolio is an all-energy portfolio focusing on oil & gas and related companies, with an emphasis on dividends. It is expected that the portfolio will have a dividend yield equal to 200% of the S&P 500 and a market beta of 1.5x that of the S&P 500. The Oil & Gas Income Portfolio will utilize a mix of upstream (production), midstream (transportation) and downstream (refining) dividend-paying stocks to achieve a conservative portfolio suitable for most income-oriented investors. This portfolio will hold global energy companies, but will have a focus on those operating primarily in North America (including Marcellus Shale, Barnett Shale and the Bakken Oil Formation).

This Week’s Top 20 ETFs
Ranked By Weighted Average Broker Rating of Underlying ComponentsEach week, ETF Channel forms this rank by first looking at the analyst opinions from the major brokerage houses (which are tallied and averaged) for each individual component of each ETF. Then, for each ETF, those average broker ratings are considered as a weighted average according to the weighting of each of the ETF’s components — this gives the average broker rating for the entire ETF based upon its holdings. The ETF coverage universe is then ranked to give us the weekly top five ETFs by weighted average broker rating of underlying components. These rankings are meant as a tool for investors to generate ideas for further research.

SPONSORED AREAWhy are Warren Buffett and Bill Gates dumping these stocks?

Buffett just ditched millions of shares in familiar giants like Procter and Gamble. Bill Gates just dumped 90 million shares of Microsoft. Why? They’re scared. Obama’s economic policies scare them. Don’t listen to what they say. Watch what they do. Gates just invested $571 million in this special ‘back-to-basics’ company. Buffett followed suit to the tune of $300 million. What do they know that you don’t? Don’t let Buffett and Bill make all the money. There’s still time. Buy this stock in America’s oldest and safest industry, hold on to it and let it make you richer for decades. It’s what our favorite billionaires are planning.

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 weekly using our proprietary DividendRank formula, and sharing those lists with our subscribers, neatly divided into 17 sectors/categories.

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

New Breakout Underway? – 06/28/2013

The 50 day moving average stands at 1619. Stocks flickered above momentarily Thursday, but in the end couldn’t handle the heat. This makes six straight sessions below the bar.

Note that on a fundamental basis stocks should be well above given recent economic strength. Also consider this equation:

Less QE = higher bond rates = bond fund losses = stocks more attractive.

Unfortunately far too many investors got this equation wrong the past few weeks. Now they are starting to react properly to the improving economic picture including today’s positive Personal Income & Outlays report which maps over to another quarter of solid GDP activity.

The odds are increasing that we will get back above the 50 day soon. Perhaps not on this first effort, but by t he 2nd or 3rd attempt. So look for a day in the near future with prices falling back towards 1600 and then buy in for the likely resumption of the long term bull rally.

Best,

Steve Reitmeister (aka Reity…pronounced “Righty”)

CURRENCIES

The September Dollar closed lower due to profit taking on Thursday as it consolidates some of the rally off June’s low. The low-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening when Thursday’s night session begins trading. Stochastics and the RSI remain bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. If September extends the rally off June’s low, the 75% retracement level of the May-June decline crossing at 83.78 is the next upside target. Closes below the 10-day moving average crossing at 82.05 would confirm that a short-term top has been posted. First resistance is today’s high crossing at 83.43. Second resistance is the 75% retracement level of the May-June decline crossing at 83.78. First support is the 20-day moving average crossing at 82.11. Second support is the 10-day moving averag e crossing at 82.05.

The September Euro closed higher due to short covering on Thursday as it consolidates some of the decline off June’s high. The high-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening when Friday’s night session begins trading. Stochastics and the RSI are oversold but remain bearish signaling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. If September extends the aforementioned decline, June’s low crossing at 129.63 is the next downside target. Closes above the 20-day moving average crossing at 132.01 are needed to confirm that a short-term low has been posted. First resistance is the 20-day moving average crossing at 132.01. Second resistance is June’s high crossing at 134.24. First support is Wednesday’s low crossing at 129.88. Second support is June’s low crossing at 129.63.

The September British Pound closed lower on Thursday as it extended the decline off June’s high. The mid-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower openi ng when Friday’s night session begins trading. Stochastics and the RSI remain bearish signaling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. If September extends the decline off June’s high, May’s low crossing at 1.4999 is the next downside target. Closes above the 20-day moving average crossing at 1.5483 would confirm that a short-term low has been posted. First resistance is the 20-day moving average crossing at 1.5483. Second resistance is June’s high crossing at 1.5743. First support is today’s low crossing at 1.5193. Second support is May’s low crossing at 1.4999.

The September Swiss Franc closed lower on Thursday as it extended the decline off June’s high. The mid-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening when Friday’s night session begins trading. Stochastics and the RSI are bearish signaling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. If September extends the decline off June’s high, the 62% retracement level of the May-June rally cross ing at .10484 is the next downside target. Closes above the 10-day moving average crossing at .10742 would temper the near-term bearish outlook. First resistance is the 10-day moving average crossing at .10742. Second resistance is June’s high crossing at .10962. First support is the 50% retracement level of the May-June rally crossing at .10576. Second support is the 62% retracement level of the May-June rally crossing at .10484.

The September Canadian Dollar closed higher due to short covering on Thursday as it consolidates some of this year’s decline. The low-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening when Friday’s night session begins trading.
