#HYHRD: Updating the ’10 Best’ Comparison chart; $LOAN $RETL $NRZ $ORC $APTS $BGCP $DRAD $IHE $NRF $WMC

You are reading my latest update to my ongoing blog posts that attempt to compare 10 of the best scoring stocks/ETFs I have found. What follows below is the latest iteration of this attempt to set up the ’10 Best’ comparison chart on stockcharts.com;

In my original blog post on 4/12/15 entitled “#HYHRD: Creating a ’10 Best’ Comparison chart; $LOAN $NRZ $APTS $ORC $NRF $NEWT $MHFI $WMC $MCO $CLNY” I attempted to create a ’10 Best’ list and comparison chart. You can search the blog for that and any subsequent posts using the search string “’10 Best’ Comparison chart” to see any changes that have occurred since that original post.

The original post included 6 different charts as I weeded out the worst performers and 2 screenshots of my spreadsheets; one of the ‘comparison’ list of 33 stocks, and another of my 15 current holdings. This was mainly to show the process, but I feel it is not relevant or necessary to beat that dead horse.

For brevity, this post will include just one screenshot of the comparison chart of 10 of the best stocks (IMHO), and 1 screenshot from my spreadsheets of the comparison sheet that also shows our current holdings.

#HYHRD: P&F charts for $PGH $VGR $WMC $APTS $DBJP $IHE $RETL $VDC $NAT $NRZ $SRLP $BX

Point & Figure charts, according to stockcharts.com, “consist of columns of X’s and O’s that represent filtered price movements. X-Columns represent rising prices and O-Columns represent falling prices. Each price box represents a specific value that price must reach to warrant an X or an O. Time is not a factor in P&F charting. These charts evolve as prices move. No movement in price means no change in the P&F chart. In classic 3-box reversal charts, column reversals are further filtered requiring a 3-box minimum to reverse the current column. The 3-box Reversal Method is the most popular P&F charting method.”

Another thing to consider with Point & Figure Charts is that time is irrelevant. A difficult concept to grasp, but there are so many who use it to ‘chart’ their course that it is difficult, if not downright absurd, to dismiss it without further study.

One of the many interesting aspects of point & figure charting is price objectives are easier to discern. How correct they are remains to be seen, but I am considering them presently. Time (which is irrelevant!) will tell!

So, in light of that, I present this group of hand-picked stock symbols with their PnF charts. This group is either owned by me (PGH, VGR, WMC), or under consideration for addition to our portfolio in the foreseeable future (APTS, DBJP, IHE, RETL, VDC, NAT, NRZ, SRLP, BX), and/or may contain other interesting and/or somehow important symbols to me. YMMV, of course!

Here are the P&F charts for this group;

#HYHRD: 4/25 #Buy #List $BGCP $LOAN $NRF $ORC $PGF.CA $WMC $APTS $DBJP $IHE $RETL $STUDY

Checking my previous posts for symbols to add to my shopping list; #HYHRD: spreadsheets… and #HYHRD: Charts… yields this info;

From the #HYHRD watchlist;

Based solely on the scoring procedure used on this Screening Spreadsheet, I might look into buying; $NAT, $NRZ, $APTS, $BX, $STON, $ALDW, & $MITT, and may initiate a position at some point in the future. In so doing I would most assuredly affect my overall dividend yield, but the annualized total return may be worth that compromise. They must also look good on the charts.

From the ETF/ETN watchlist;

Based solely on the scoring procedure used on this Screening Spreadsheet, I might look further into buying; $RETL, $IHE, & $DBJP, and may initiate a position at some point in the future. In so doing I would most assuredly affect my overall dividend yield, but the annualized total return may be worth that compromise. They must also look good on the charts.

Now, the above are the top scoring (according to finviz mostly) based on return and yield from each watch list. That alone doesn’t actually qualify them for acquisition.

I then take a look at the results from the charts;

#HYHRD: Show me the money! Ex-dividend and dividend pay dates as of w/e 4/25 $STUDY

These are the upcoming expected dividend pay dates and amount(s) expected from each stock.

These amounts are a compilation from all of our accounts, so some is taxable, some is tax-deferred, and some is tax-free. If you check out my Expected dividend spreadsheets you can see how it all breaks down, or you could just read my posts and look at the screenshots (ooooh, pretty pictures!).

Speaking of pretty pictures, here’s the most recent and pertinent dates spreadsheet (from my Expected Dividends workbook);
