One can gradually acquire a portfolio of such stocks. They may then either be held for long-term capital appreciation and income or sold when up 100% or after held for two years, whichever first. If held long-term, it is still well to monitor the assets and sell any for which the dividend payout rises significantly. Whenever assets are redeemed from the portfolio, it is important that replacement dividend stock purchases also have low dividend payout ratios.
The stocks in the table each have value analysis aspects in their favor, for instance low price to earnings, a recently positive earnings surprise, relatively high dividend rate, or low price to book value. Their average dividend and dividend payout ratio are 3.6% and 28%, respectively. Thus the overall yield is above average while the risk of the dividends being cut is relatively low.
