Dividend Companies            
Dividend Companies
Are high dividends a priority? How about well known,
established companies? When evaluating Dividend
Companies, do you consider other facts besides
dividends like PE ratios, price to book ratios, sector or
market cap? Are you interested in whether company
insiders are optimistic about the stock? SignalTrend has
assembled all of that data in one time saving research
page.... SignalTrend's Dividend Companies page.

Buybacks
Companies issue new shares when they initially go
public. They also issue shares at other times to raise
capital instead of borrowing. Many companies use
excess cash to repurchase their shares.  The decision by
a companies board of directors or executive officers to
repurchase (buy back) shares of the company's common
stock may indicate that company insiders believe that the
stock is under-valued. After all, who knows more about a
company's inherent worth than those insiders?

All of the nine screens below have a
Stock Buyback vs.
Sales column
which shows the net dollar repurchase of
stock by the company, divided by the market value of the
company.
S&P 100 Stock Screens

best known companies.

Nine free screens show the ten S&P 100 companies with:

Highest Three Year EPS Growth - S&P 100
The 10 highest dividend paying stocks in the S&P 100 are included above. Company names followed by an * are components of the
Dow Jones Industrial Average.
Stock Buyback %
A stock buyback, also called a "share repurchase" is the buying back of a company's shares. The company is essentially,
investing in its-self.
The issuance (sale) of new shares by a company is the opposite of a buyback. The column titled "Stock
Buybacks vs. Sales" shows the
net dollar repurchase of stock (repurchases - sales) by the company over the last four reported
quarters divided by the
market value of the company. If the result is positive, the company was a net buyer of its own stock. If the
result is negative, the company was a net seller of its stock. The 10 buybacks in the S&P 100 with the highest buyback percentage
are displayed in the above screen. Dow stocks are indicated by an *.
Stock Buyback %
When a company raises funds by issuing shares, it is essentially, selling its-self. The issuance (sale) of new shares by a company is
the opposite of a buyback. The column titled "Stock Buybacks vs. Sales" shows the
net dollar repurchase of stock by the
company over the last four reported quarters divided by  the
market value of the company. If the result is positive, the company
was a net buyer of its own stock. If the result is negative, the company was a net seller of its stock.
Net Payout Yield %
The Net Payout Yield % is the sum of the Dividend Yield and Stock Buyback columns.  It represents the sum of the dollars spent on
both dividends and stock repurchases divided by the Market Value of the stock. Dividends benefit shareholders by distributing cash
directly to the shareholders. Funds used for buybacks decrease the number of outstanding shares and proportionately increase the
ownership percentage (and EPS) of each remaining outstanding share.
Trailing P/E
The ratio of the stocks latest closing price to the company's earning per share from total operations for the last reported 12 months.
Price/Book
Ratio of the share price to the company's book value per share using the latest reported figure. Book value is the total assets of a
company minus total liabilities, also called shareholder's equity.
3 Yr. EPS Growth
The three year actual compounded annual growth rate of earnings per share using the latest 12-month figures, derived by the least
squares method, using 4 data points - a base year plus 3 subsequent annual data points.

Dogs of the Dow
The 10 highest dividend paying stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) are shown above. The "Dogs of the Dow"
strategy, was popularized in the 1991 book "Beating the Dow", by Michael O'Higgins. O'Higgins started with the 10 highest dividend
paying stocks in the Dow and then narrowed the list based on share price. Others have expanded since that time with adjustments to
the selection process.
The above data is updated every three weeks except the buyback column which is updated quarterly.
