I already own shares of the highlighted stocks. In order to diversify my portfolio, I look further down the list and select 7 candidates for further analysis. The 7 candidates for September are:
|PennantPark Investment Corp. (PNNT):||(*******)||
|China Petroleum & Chemical Corp. (SNP):||(*******)||
|Procter & Gamble Co. (PG):||(*******)||
|Shaw Communications Inc. (SJR):||(*******)||
|Johnson & Johnson. (JNJ):||(*******)||
|Edison International (EIX):||(*******)||
|Coach Inc. (COH):||(*******)|
PNNT is a business development company, meaning it pays out a significant percentage of its earnings in the form of dividends. PNNT's high yield looks interesting, but I wonder how sustainable it is. SNP pays semi-annual dividends, in May or June and in September. They've just paid their September dividend, so you'd have to wait 8 months before the next dividend is paid. PG trades at about fair value, though its P/E ratio is somewhat high.
SJR is trading at a premium of about 5% to fair value and its Debt to Equity ratio is quite high. JNJ's P/E ratio is somewhat high and it doesn't adhere to the Chowder Dividend Rule. Likewise, EIX, with its low growth rate doesn't adhere to the Chowder Dividend Rule. It also has a high Debt to Equity ratio. COH is a repeat candidate from last month and looks like a good candidate for an analysis.
I currently have enough cash for one purchase. However, I'm considering adding another bonus deposit to DivGro, which would give me more flexibility. Stand by for my next stock purchase!
