As the markets continue to churn sideways in our summer months, I have kept a significant portion of my portfolio in dividend yielding (income producing) equities and, as my readers likely know, I continue to seek new, dividend-yielding value. A recent screen of mine, which captures equities with low price to book (P/B) ratios, low price to sales (P/S) ratios, positive return on equity (ROE), positive dividend yield, buy or better analyst ratings, and high EPS growth, yielded 20 dividend-yielding…

2011 has proven to be a year of education for many, myself included. Aside from protecting from loss of capital, hedging against the risk exposure associated with equities investments has been the most important lesson I have (re)learned from the volatility our markets faced in 2011.

If you haven't read What Works on Wall Street: A Guide to the Best-Performing Investment Strategies of All Time by James P. O'Shaughnessy, you should. Using 45 years of S&P Compustat market data and a systematic, fundamental approach, O'Shaughnessy researched the performance of many different investment strategies and concluded that some produced greater returns than the S&P 500 while others produced less.

A stock's dividend yield is a good initial indicator of the kind of value you are getting when purchasing the stock. A higher dividend yield means a better value, generally. As December approaches, the month believed to be the best time to buy and sell long term positions according to O'Shaughnessy's cornerstone strategy, rebalancing my long term portfolio, is becoming a priority. In my search for long term opportunities, and with the sting of this year's market turbulence not yet…
