Stock Market Forecast
SignalTrend's
helping you... manage your money
Stock Trading            
Stock Trading
You make your own decisions. Stock Trading is a
potential source of tremendous profits. But you need
timely, factual information about substantial companies
from a wide variety of industries. SignalTrend's Stock
Trading page does all that, saves you time and brings
prime opportunities to the forefront.

Buybacks
You may be aware that corporations often trade their
own stock on the open market. They may buy one month
and then sell the next. They may even buy and sell in the
same month. Corporations often announce plans to buy
back billions of dollars of their stock. Sometimes they
follow through, sometimes they don't. Companies may
buy the announced shares, only to sell them later. But
when the purchases and sales are combined to reveal
which companies were really net buyers or net sellers...
and whether they bought a large percentage of their
shares or not... savvy stock traders pay attention.

All nine screens below have a
Stock Buyback vs.
Sales column
which shows the net dollar repurchase of
stock by the company divided by market capitalization.
S&P 100 Stock Screens
The S&P 100 contains one hundred of Wall Street's largest and
best known companies.

Nine free screens show the ten S&P 100 companies with:
● Highest Yields
● Lowest Price / Earnings ratios
● Lowest Price / Book ratios
● Highest 5 Year Total Returns
● Highest 3 Year Earnings Per Share Growth
● Strongest Buyback Histories - Companies that are
aggressively buying back their own shares.
SignalTrend also provides other innovative stock trading tools to
help you manage your money. In fact, you can...

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 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.
