Stocks Going Ex Dividend the First Week of October

Here is our latest update on the stock trading technique called ‘Buying Dividends,’ also commonly referred to as ‘Dividend Capture.’ This is the process of buying stocks before the ex dividend date and selling the stock shortly after the ex date at about the same price, yet still being entitled to the dividend.

This technique generally works only in bull markets, and can work in flat or choppy markets, but you need to avoid the technique during bear markets. In order to be entitled to the dividend, you have to buy the stock before the ex-dividend date, and you can’t sell the stock until after the ex date.

The actual dividend may not be paid for another few weeks. WallStreetNewsNetwork.com has compiled a downloadable and sortable list of the stocks going ex dividend in the near future. The list contains many dividend paying companies, lots with market caps over $500 million, and yields over 2%. Here are a few examples showing the stock symbol, the ex-dividend date, the quarterly dividend amount, and annual yield.

Agilent Technologies, Inc. (A) 10/02/17 0.132 0.80%
Comcast Corporation (CMCSA) 10/3/2017 0.157 1.56%

Why You Should Buy Stocks with a High Tax Rate

If you are looking for a short term speculation or a long term investment, you may want to look for stocks that are currently paying a high tax rate. Why?

According to the Tax Policy Institute, President-Elect Donald Trump has proposed a substantially reduced rate of 15% for corporations. What that means for stocks is that if companies are currently paying taxes at a high rate, they will benefit significantly from tax savings that will flow to the bottom line.

Surprisingly there are some companies that have a tax rate in excess of 60% (e.g. Amazon (AMZN)), according to a report by Wallet Hub. This includes state taxes.

Here are some of the hight overall tax bracket stocks, which may warrant further investigation.

Comcast (CMCSA) 37.1%

Home Depot (HD) 36.4

Norfolk Southern (NSC) 36.3%

Altria (MO) 35.1%

Verizon (VZ) 34.9%

Emerson Electric (EMR) 34.3%

Do your homework and your own due diligence. Hopefully, a corporate tax break with benefit your portfolio.

How to Invest in the Olympics

The 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro had its opening ceremony yesterday, August 5, 2016, and will run until August 21. There will be over 207 nations participating with more than 10,000 athletes. The United States has already received its first gold medal for the women’s 10-meter air rifle event.

In 2008, the Summer Olympics had the largest global viewership, and the highest peak viewer share in the world of any television broadcast. With that track record, if 2016 comes even close to that, it will been a boon to the companies connected with the Olympics.

Investors that are looking for a way to play the Olympics have several companies that they can choose from.

First, you have the airlines. United (UAL) is the official airline of the Olympics. LATAM Airlines (LFL ) serves the South American market and will be bringing a large number of passengers to Rio.

In terms of clothing and apparel, there is Ralph Lauren (RL) which made the Olympic outfits. Nike (NKE) is a proud sponsor, and we will be seeing many Nike shoes in several events. Under Armour (UA) is not an official sponsor but has made the uniforms for the US gymnastics teams, and should benefit from the publicity. Finally, there is Dick’s Sporting Goods (DKS), which markets various types of athletic apparel and exercise equipment. It is an official sponsor.

Next there is the media. The Olympics are being broadcast on the NBC television network, which is owned by Comcast (CMCSA). Media General (MEG) will have the Olympics aired on 13 of its NBC affiliates.

Last but not least is Visa (V), an official sponsor, which is handling the Olympic payment system.

Hopefully, some of these stocks can provide a gold medal for your portfolio.
