Mattel is Now Oversold (MAT)

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 20:36:00 GMT2016-09-30T16:36:00Z

Legendary investor Warren Buffett advises to be fearful when others are greedy, and be greedy when others are fearful. One way we can try to measure the level of fear in a given stock is through a technical analysis indicator called the Relative Strength Index, or RSI, which measures momentum on a scale of zero to 100. A stock is considered to be oversold if the RSI reading falls below 30.

CF Industries Holdings (CF) Shares Cross 5% Yield Mark

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 19:15:00 GMT2016-09-30T15:15:00Z

Looking at the universe of stocks we cover at Dividend Channel, in trading on Friday, shares of CF Industries Holdings Inc (NYSE: CF) were yielding above the 5% mark based on its quarterly dividend (annualized to $1.20), with the stock changing hands as low as $23.95 on the day. Dividends are particularly important for investors to consider, because historically speaking dividends have provided a considerable share of the stock market's total return. To illustrate, suppose for example you purchased shares of the S&P 500 ETF (SPY) back on 12/31/1999 — you would have paid $146.88 per share. Fast forward to 12/31/2012 and each share was worth $142.41 on that date, a decrease of $4.67/share over all those years. But now consider that you collected a whopping $25.98 per share in dividends over the same period, for a positive total return of 23.36%. Even with dividends reinvested, that only amounts to an average annual total return of about 1.6%; so by comparison collecting a yield above 5% would appear considerably attractive if that yield is sustainable. CF Industries Holdings Inc (NYSE: CF) is an S&P 500 company, giving it special status as one of the large-cap companies making up the S&P 500 Index.

Especially high volume was seen for the $162.50 strike call option expiring October 07, 2016, with 2,888 contracts trading so far today, representing approximately 288,800 underlying shares of GS. Below is a chart showing GS's trailing twelve month trading history, with the $162.50 strike highlighted in orange:

How The FOMC Has Bluffed An Interest Rate Hike The Whole Year

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 16:52:00 GMT2016-09-30T12:52:00Z

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) voted to leave the Fed funds rate unchanged in its meeting on September 20-21, 2016. It’s been the same old song and dance in 2016. The Federal Reserve says one thing, but does the complete opposite. It’s quite clear that the Fed has no intentions of raising rates this year.

AMTD Crosses Above Average Analyst Target

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 13:32:00 GMT2016-09-30T09:32:00Z

In recent trading, shares of TD Ameritrade Holding Corp (NASD: AMTD) have crossed above the average analyst 12-month target price of $33.36, changing hands for $34.47/share. When a stock reaches the target an analyst has set, the analyst logically has two ways to react: downgrade on valuation, or, re-adjust their target price to a higher level. Analyst reaction may also depend on the fundamental business developments that may be responsible for driving the stock price higher — if things are looking up for the company, perhaps it is time for that target price to be raised.

5 Dividend Aristocrats Where Analysts See Capital Gains

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 13:31:00 GMT2016-09-30T09:31:00Z

To become a "Dividend Aristocrat," a dividend paying company must accomplish an incredible feat: consistently increase shareholder dividends every year for at least 20 consecutive years. Companies with this kind of track record tend to attract a lot of investor attention — and furthermore, "tracking" funds that follow the Dividend Aristocrats Index must own them. With all of this demand for shares, dividend growth stocks can sometimes become "fully priced," where there isn't much upside to analyst targets.



BlackBerry Does The Right Thing By Pulling The Plug On Handset Development

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 12:38:00 GMT2016-09-30T08:38:00Z

BlackBerry released its Q2 FY’17 earnings on Wednesday, September 28, indicating that its pivot towards becoming an enterprise mobility software provider gained momentum, with software and services revenues doubling year-over-year. The firm also announced that it would be pulling the plug on its internal handset development activities, instead working with third parties to launch new devices. That said, the firm’s financial performance remained a mixed bag, as earnings beat analyst expectations although revenues fell short of projections, declining by 32% year-over-year. BlackBerry also raised its full year earnings outlook, driven by its improving gross margins and its recent move to refinance some debt. Below, we outline some of the key takeaways from BlackBerry’s earnings.
