Actionable Conclusions (1-10): Analysts Estimated Top Ten "Safer" Financials WallStars To Net 18.15% to 42% Gains By September 2019 Five of ten top "safer" dividend Financials (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 50% accurate.
Projections based on estimated dividend amounts from $1000 invested in the ten highest yielding stocks and the aggregate one-year analyst mean target prices for those stocks, 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, Inc. (BGCP) netted $420.79 based on a median target price from two analysts, plus dividends, less broker fees. The Beta number showed this estimate subject to volatility 2% more than the market as a whole.
Lazard Ltd. (LAZ) netted $413.00 based on a median target from eight analysts, plus projected annual dividends less broker fees. The Beta number showed this estimate subject to volatility 78% above the market as a whole.
