Financial Investor Strategy:

Rule #1: Stock Must Pay A Dividend, Is There A Buying Opportunity When Yield Higher Then It’s 1 Yr Avg.

  • Dividend Stocks are defensive stocks by nature and prevents the stock price from falling much during bearish markets.

Rule #2: Low Price to Earnings (P/E), Under Current S&P Avg (2019 – Currently ~21.5)

  • A low P/E ratio suggests the company is trading below its value, making it cheap.

Rule #3: Low Payout Ratio Under 60%, Unless A REIT.

  • The payout ratio is the percent of earnings needed to support the dividend. With a 50% payout and Below, a company’s earnings could fall by half and still cover the dividend. 

Rule #4:  History Of Growing Dividend 5 Years Minimum, Dividend Growth of at least 5% or Higher Per Year.

  • Consistent dividend almost always indicates a healthy business. The company is generating cash and wants to say “Thank You” to shareholders.

Rule #5:  Strong Balance Sheet 3 Yr Increase In (Revenue, Net Income, Free Cash Flow).

  • Increasing Revenue, Increasing Net Income, Steady Free Cash Flow are all important for long term investing.

Rule #6: Optional – If Possible Stocks Trading For A Price-To-Book (P/B) Ratio Lower Than 3.

  • A low P/B value suggests the company is undervalued, and you could be getting into a great company at a discount.

Rule #7: Optional  – If Possible Stocks Trading For A Price-To-Sales (P/S) Ratio Lower Than 3.

  • Well-established businesses with reliable sales can command a higher ratio than 3.  In the private markets companies often get bought and sold at prices between 1 and 2 times sales.
