Dividend Stocks I can Quickly Eliminate

Interestingly, this month I ended up with a few thinly traded stocks, and where I don’t shy away from smaller companies these are just too small for even me:

  • EFSI – Market Cap under $100,000,000 with an average of 476 shares traded per day.
  • NIDB – Market Cap under $100,000,000 with an average of 166 shares traded per day.
  • CPKF – Market Cap under $100,000,000 with an average of 558 shares traded per day.

May 2016 Lot Purchase – TROW

I am purchasing T. Rowe Price as my May 2016 Purchase.

  • P/E – 16.3 vs 19.2 Industry Average
  • Operating marign – 44 vs 29.8
  • P/B – 3.9 vs 1.7 Industry Average
  • Yield – 2.79%
  • Payout Ratio 45.20%

I like purchasing stocks that are off of their 52 week high. Today T-Rowe is priced at $74.19 with a 52 week low of $63.57 and a 52 week high of $82.50.
