Actionable Conclusions (1-10): Brokers Estimate Top Ten 'Safer' Dividend S&P 500 Stocks Could Net 27.99% to 48.7% Gains By October 2019 Three of the ten tops-by-yield 'safer' Dividend S&P 500 (tinted in the chart above) were among the top ten gainers for the coming year based on analyst 1 year targets. Thus, the dog strategy for this group, as graded by analyst estimates for this month, proved 30% accurate.
Projections based on estimated dividend returns from $1,000 invested in each of the thirty highest yielding stocks and their aggregate one year analyst median target prices, as reported by YCharts, created the 2018-19 data points. Note: one year target prices by lone analysts were not applied. The ten probable profit-generating trades projected to October 25, 2019, by that reckoning were:
WestRock Co. (WRK) netted $487.10 based on a median target price set by sixteen analysts, plus estimated dividends less broker fees. The Beta number showed this estimate subject to volatility 62% more than the market as a whole.
Valero Energy Corp. (VLO) netted $465.47 based on a mean target estimate from nineteen analysts, plus dividends less broker fees. The Beta number showed this estimate subject to volatility 3% more than the market as a whole.
MetLife Inc. (MET) netted $341.64 based on estimates from nineteen analysts, plus dividends less broker fees. The Beta number showed this estimate subject to volatility 23% more than the market as a whole.
