There is always something to buy in the stock market. On Monday, 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.
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 my spreadsheet at here. As in other spreadsheets, you can highlight a line or a number of lines for better viewing.
A number of Consumer Staple stocks seem to be cheap. Examples would be Dorel Industries (TSX-DII.B A) and Metro Inc. (TSX-MRU). This has not changed from last month. (Please note that Canada Bread (TSX-CBY) is being bought out.) A number of energy stocks also seem cheap. Examples are Canadian Natural Resources (TSX-CNQ); Cenovus Energy Inc. (TSX-CVE) and Suncor Energy (TSX-SU) and this has not changed from February.
There are not that many cheap companies in Finance, but the banks mostly seem on the cheaper side. However, I note that Bank of Montreal (TSX-BMO) is no longer cheap. There are not many companies cheap in the Tech sector except for small companies like Calian Technologies Ltd (TSX-CTY) and Evertz Technologies (TSX-ET) and this is the same as for February 2014.
The infrastructure type utility companies are still not cheap. What utility companies that are cheap, seem to be cheap for a good reason. A current example is Atlantic Power Corp (TSX-ATP). TransAlta Corp (TSX-TA) is not only cheap looking at the 5 year median dividend yield. This company has just cut their dividend.
