Mid-Month Yield Curve Update

Enough has happened in credit markets that I figured it was time to update charts. The long end of the curve has moved up a bit, which has led to some expressions of relief. I'm not sure we're totally out of the weeds.

The entire curve has moved up from its lows by about 1/2%. That's mildly bullish. It suggests that the market doesn't think the Fed has to react quite as strongly to maintain stability. But what would really be bullish is if short-term rates were at more like 1% and the long end of the curve would be at 3%+ (circa 2003). That was a yield curve of a marginally neutral central bank creating stability. But because of the housing bubble, very few people believe that about 2003, so it still seems to me that the pressure will be to take a hawkish posture, and... more

My 10-Year-Old's First Dividend Growth Stock: Coca-Cola

Meet my 5th Grade Daughter
Lucy is 10. She's keen on skiing, mountain biking, parkour, dancing, art, knitting, cooking, and happens to be very good at math (whether she likes it or not). She also enjoys when I point out companies we own shares of. Example:
Me - "Lucy, you see that brown UPS truck? We own a part of that company."
Lucy - "WOW!"
My wife and I have tried to be proactive in building good savings habits and a strong work ethic with both kids (Lucy has a 6-year-old sister, Molly). Each receives an allowance based on how successful they've been with their individual "chore charts". Established by age, Lucy's weekly max is $10, while Molly's is $6. Once we determine and pay their weekly earnings, Lucy does some math. Before a penny is spent, they pull out 20%,... more

Reasonably Valued, High Quality, High Yield Dividend Growth Stocks

I've been using a modified version of David Van Knapp's quality scoring system to rank the Dividend Aristocrats, the Dividend Kings, and the Dividend Champions. The system employs five widely used quality indicators from independent sources and assigns 0-5 points to each quality indicator, for a maximum of 25 points.
A modified version of David Van Knapp's quality scoring system.
My modifications include assigning 3 points to companies that don't have an S&P Credit Rating but carry no debt. In order to rank dividend growth [DG] stocks, I break ties by considering the following factors, in turn:

UGA: The Power Of Roll Yield

Over the last year, shares of the United States Gasoline ETF (UGA) have strongly performed by bringing a 34% return to shareholders. In this piece, I will argue that I believe UGA has much more upside remaining and that in the coming months, the returns will be strongly positive for the instrument.
Understanding UGA Prior to jumping into an analysis of the gasoline markets, let’s talk about exactly what UGA is and seeks to accomplish. If you’re familiar with the popular oil market ETF USO, then you’ll likely immediately understand UGA since it’s basically the exact same methodology but instead of holding crude futures, UGA holds gasoline futures.
The basic methodology behind UGA is that it offers exposure to gasoline futures and holds the front-month contract until two... more

Weekly Review: High-Yield CEFs - Lack Of Significant Changes Among The Funds

Introduction
The closed-end funds from the high-yield sector significantly increased their prices over the past months. Currently, most of them are traded at positive Z-scores, which is an indication that they have lost most of their statistical edge. Still, they are traded at high discounts, but we are cautious when we select our positions due to the lack of statistical edge. For me, personally, I am in a waiting mode to see a statistical opportunity to review some of the funds.
The Benchmark
Just a slight change in the price of the main benchmark which we use to track the high-yield sector. Over the past week, the iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) rose by $0.03 per share and finished the Friday session at $86.85 per share. The main index remains close to... more

AbbVie: 5.5% Yield And Recent 10% Dividend Increase

Stocks with higher yields are among our favorite stocks because they allow investors to compound their dividend income at a much higher rate. But there has to be more than just a generous dividend to warrant an investment. If business fundamentals are deteriorating or the dividend is at risk, investors should avoid those stocks.
Pharmaceutical giant AbbVie Inc. (ABBV) has struggled in recent years, mostly due to concerns over declining revenue for Humira. The stock price has declined 4.5% year-to-date while the S&P 500 has returned more than 23%. However, AbbVie has strong long-term growth potential thanks to its pipeline and the Allergan (AGN) acquisition. In the meantime, the stock has a 5.5% yield and recently increased its dividend by 10%, making it one of our favorite... more
