Something to Buy July 2020

There is always something to buy in the stock market. On Tuesday, I put out a list of the stocks that I covered and showed what stock might be a good deal based on dividend yield. Now I am trying to categorize what sorts of stocks may be a good deal based on dividend yield. The dividend yield test in this note is a quick way of finding possible stock buys.

The advantages to using dividend yield to judge how cheap or expensive a stock is, is that you are not using estimates or old data (like last reported quarter's data). You are using today's stock price and today's dividend yield. However, this is just a place to start. It is a good idea to check the stock with other tests, especially the P/S Ratio test.

For other testing, like P/E Ratios, P/S Ratios, P/CF Ratios, P/BV Ratios and Price/Graham Price Ratios, you use estimates or data from the last reported financial quarter.

If a stock is showing as a buy using the dividend yield test, I usually like to verify it is a buy by doing a P/S Ratio test. Here you compare the current P/S Ratio to the 10 year median P/S Ratio. If the current P/S Ratio is lower than the 10 year median, then the stock is a buy. I note that Morningstar gives a current P/S Ratio. The 10 year median ratio is shown in my review of a stock. The 10 year median ratio in a review is good for one year from the date of review.

This historical dividend yield test does not work well for old Income Trust companies. These companies had quite high Dividend Yields which will probably never be seen again. So, I started a column called VT (for Valid Test) and this applies to checking stock price using dividend yield. If it is not a valid test, I use N to show this. For these stocks, you might be better comparing the current dividend yield to the 10 year median dividend yield.

However, no system is perfect. But if you are interested in buying a stock a list of stocks cheap or reasonable using dividend yield data might be a good place to start.

Categorizing stocks is not as simple as it might seem. Every site you go to has categorized stocks a bit differently. I try to keep this as simple as possible. See Something to Buy July 2020 Spreadsheet to see what stocks are showing whether a stock is relatively cheap based on historical high dividend yields (P/Hi), historical average dividend yields (P/Ave), historical median dividend yields (P/Med) or on 5 year median dividend yields (P/5Yr). As in other spreadsheets, you can highlight a line or a number of lines for better viewing.

In the following notes I am only going to list stocks showing as cheap using the historical high dividend yields (P/Hi) and historical median dividend yields (P/Med).

Dividend Stocks July 2020

The Blogger Stock Trades Canada has on his site a list of Canadian stocks that have cut their dividends. If you want to stay update on dividend cuts, this seems to a good place to keep an eye on. Also. My Own Advisor Blogger has done a recent blog on Top Canadian stocks to weather COVID-19. You might also want to get the free weekly newsletter from Canadian Stock Channel which says what might be the best Canadian Dividend Stocks to buy at the present time.

First, I want to point out that not all of the stocks I follow are great investments. I follow a diverse selection of stocks. There are some that I would never invest in personally. I follow a number of resource stocks even though I personally have little invested in this area. I follow what I find interesting and with resource stocks, I think it is important for Canadians to know what is happening in the resource area. On the other hand, I do follow of good number of great dividend growth stocks.

The theory is that you should use the dividend yield to see if a dividend stock is selling at a stock price that is relatively cheap. A stock price is considered cheap if it is selling at a dividend yield higher than the historical high yield or higher than the historical average yield or historical median yield. Some use the 10 year average or median yield rather than the historical ones. I use median yields, always. See my spreadsheet at dividend growth stocks that I just updated for July 2020.

On this list,
  • I have 21 stocks with a dividend yield higher than the historical high dividend yield,
  • I have 52 stocks with a dividend yield higher than the historical average dividend yield
  • I have 79 stocks with a dividend yield higher than the historical median dividend yield and
  • 91 stocks with a dividend yield higher than the 5 year average dividend yield.
When I did my list last list in June 2020,
  • I have 20 stocks with a dividend yield higher than the historical high dividend yield,
  • I have 53 stocks with a dividend yield higher than the historical average dividend yield
  • I have 80 stocks with a dividend yield higher than the historical median dividend yield and
  • 93 stocks with a dividend yield higher than the 5 year average dividend yield.
When I did my list in January 2014,
  • I had 9 stocks with a dividend yield higher than the historical high dividend yield,
  • I had 45 stocks with a dividend yield higher than the historical average dividend yield and
  • 39 stocks with a dividend yield higher than the 5 year average dividend yield.
If you had one share of each stock, total dividends last month would be $163.67. This month dividends would be $162.68. It can vary as because some stocks are paid in US$ and so this figure is affected by currency exchange. Of the stock that I follow 1 stock has raised their dividends since last month.

Empire Company Ltd (TSX-EMP.A, OTC-EMLAF)

Of the stocks I follow, 1 have cut their dividends.

Alaris Royalty Corp (TSX-AD, OTC-ALARF)

Of the stocks I follow, 1 stock has suspended or terminated their dividend.

Chesswood Group (TSX-CHW, OTC-CHWWF)

Of the stock that I follow, these stocks decreased the most in price in the last month.

Name Exch Sym Exch Sym Decrease
Supremex Inc TSX SXP OTC SUMXF -22.58%
Evertz Technologies TSX ET OTC EVTZF -20.79%
ARC Resources Ltd TSX ARX OTC AETUF -20.18%
Parkland Fuel Corp TSX PKI OTC PKIUF -16.27%
HLS Therapeutics Inc TSX HLS OTC HLTRF -14.30%
Atlantic Power Corp TSX ATP NYSE AT -12.71%
High Liner Foods TSX HLF OTC HLNFF -11.51%
WildBrain Ltd TSX WILD OTC WLDBF -11.02%
Molson Coors Canada TSX TPX.B NYSE TAP -10.89%
Savaria Corporation TSX SIS OTC SISXF -10.56%

Most of my stocks started out as Dividend Payers. Currently 20 stocks are not paying any dividends and this would be some 14.8% of the stocks that I follow. Three of these stocks never had dividends, so 12.2% of the stocks I follow have suspended their dividends. The three stocks that never paid dividends are Ballard Power Systems Inc. (TSX-BLD, NASDAQ-BLDP), Blackberry Ltd. (TSX-BB, NASDAQ-BBRY) and Trigon Metals Inc. (TSX-TM, OTC-PNTZF).

I am showing whether a stock is relatively cheap based on historical high dividend yields (P/Hi), historical average dividend yields (P/Ave), historical median dividend yields (P/Med) or on 10 year median dividend yields (P/10Y). See these fields on the right side of the file. You can highlight a particular stock using your cursor to highlight the appropriate line.

There are always some stocks to buy because they are priced reasonably. There are always stocks to currently avoid because they are overpriced. Looking at dividend growth stocks that are selling at stock prices that give them a dividend yield above the historical median dividend yield are probably the best bet.

The stocks that are selling at prices that give them a dividend yield above the historical high yield could be good stocks to buy. However, these stocks may be selling so cheap because of current troubles, especially financial troubles and should be treated with caution. Do not forget that I have all the stocks I follow on this spreadsheet and some are much better investments than others.

You should always investigate a stock before you buy. Sometimes different stocks in certain sectors are just out of favour or the stock market is just in one of its declines. However, a stock may be relatively cheap because it has problems. That is why you should always investigate a stock before buying.

Looking at stock this way is equivalent to a stock filter. A main problem I know of is for the old income trusts. These companies have generally lowered their dividend yields forever and they will probably never get back to the old dividend yield highs they made as an income trust company. For these stocks, you might be better comparing the current dividend yield to the 5 year median dividend yield. I also started a column called VT (for Valid Test) and this applies to checking stock price using dividend yield. If it is not a valid test, I use N to show this.

Also, on some stocks I have a lot more information years in my spreadsheets than for other stocks. So, finding a stock on the list as "cheap" is only the first step in finding a stock to buy. This is the same with any other sort of stock filters that you can use.

The last thing to remember is that I have entering figures into a spreadsheet. I could put them in incorrectly, I can transpose figures and I can misread figures. This is another great reason why you should check a stock out before investing. As this is just a filter, it works better on some stocks than on others.

See my entry on my methodology in establishing the historical dividend yield highs and lows for the stocks that I cover. I have an entry on my introduction to Dividend Growth. You might want to look at my original entry on Dividend Growth Stocks. I have also written about why I like Dividend Growth companies.

Predictable Interest

If you want to securely earn interest use GICs not any bond ETF. Bond are not paying interest or much interest. There is a risk in bonds and that is because interest rates and bond values go in opposite directions. If you are a novice or not an investor and do not understand investing do not go into bonds to make capital gains. This is what you do if you buy bond ETFs at this point in our history. Capital gains are not easy to make and they certainly are not easy to make on a consistent basis.

A friend of mine, who is not sophisticated in investing went to her bank to get some GICs. Her “advisor” got her to buy GICs connect to mortgages. The banks can only win with this. They put the risk of their mortgages onto their customers. The “advisors” get paid to sell these things. My friend knows that her GICs are somehow related to mortgages, but had no idea how or what the terms were. Other bonds are linked to some stock market index. Do not buy these either

Generally, with linked GICs the worst thing to happen is that you will get no interest paid at all. Usually, the face amount of the GIC is payable, so you do not lose your capital. But these things are generally non-redeemable. This means that you cannot redeem them before the end of the term.

So, the bottom line is, if you want safety and predictability the only place to be is in one to five years GICs at this point in time. There is no other place. And, I am talking about absolutely plain vanilla GICs that are not connected to anything. This site of Rate Hub seems to have some good basic Infor on GICs.

Remember the first rule of investing. It is do not buy what you do not understand.

Canadian Bank Dividends

Paul Bagnell on BNN Bloomberg says Canadian bank stock dividends are currently safe. This is, of course, a question a lot of Canadian want the answer too. Talk to a Canadian investor and they will have some Canadian Bank Stocks in their portfolio.

The Canadian blogger Dividend Earner recently had a blog entries on this subject of Canadian Banks. This is a good article on investing in Canadian Banks. A serious article on Canadian Banks and dividends is by Richard and Irene So via RBC Securities. They feel that any cut in dividends would be unlikely, but not impossible. On the site Dividend.Com Sam Bourgi talks in 2017 about how our 5 big banks have been paying dividends for over 100 years.

On my other blog I wrote yesterday about Intertape Polymer Group Inc (TSX-ITP, OTC-ITPOF) ... learn more. Next, I will write Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp (TSX-AQN, NTSE-AQN) ... learn more on Friday, June 19, 2020 around 5 pm.
