This week, Im going to focus on a simple dividend strategy that has produced some amazing results over the last few years.
This strategy is both easy to build and easy to use with the Research Wizard.
The parameters to this screen are as follows:
- Price >= $10
- Market Cap >= $500 mil.
- Zacks Rank
- Current Dividend Yield >= 8%
I ran a series of tests using a 24-week holding period over the last six-and-a-half years.
This strategy also performed great using a 12-week holding period.
A four-week holding period showed excellent results as well, but rebalancing your portfolio every four weeks would likely preclude you from receiving many of the dividends that these stocks produce.
Either way though, this Dividend Strategy has been a consistent performer through the ups and downs of the market over the last six-and-a-half years. (And hopefully in the years to come.)
Here are three stocks from this weeks list (for 12/4/07):
