Actionable Conclusions (1-10): Analysts Estimated Top Ten "Safer" Dividend Financial Services Stocks To Net 6.9% to 34.9% Gains By February 2019 Eight of the ten top "safer" dividend Financial Services stocks (tinted gray in the chart above) were verified as being among the top ten by yield for the coming year as well as for gains based on analyst 1 year target prices. Thus the yield strategy for this group as graded by analyst estimates proved 80% accurate.
Projections based on estimated increases in dividend amounts from $1000 invested in the ten highest yielding stocks and aggregate one year analyst mean target prices, as reported by YCharts, created the 2018 data points. Note: one year target prices from one analyst were not applied (n/a). Ten probable profit-generating trades to 2019 were:
BGC Partners (BGCP) netted $349.92 per price estimates from two analysts, plus dividends less broker fees. The Beta number showed this estimate subject to volatility 7% more than the market as a whole.
Stellus Capital Investment (SCM) netted $329.75 based on median targets from five analysts, plus dividends less broker fees. The Beta number showed this estimate subject to volatility 50% less than the market as a whole.
