That's some cutting edge research, guys. What's next, strong buy on Apple at an all time high? Seriously, how do these idiots make the money they make? Come out with the sell signal when Exelon is at $45 per share on its way to $35, and I'll be impressed. Calling it a bad stock after the 30% drop, not that impressive.
Agree, .costs average down and enjoy the dividend. Even if a a 20% drop in dividend were to occur My target average of $34/share (present share average of $35.7) will net 5.2%. If the Dividend is not reduced I could hit a divi of 6.2%. I also like the opportunity for capital appreciation at these low prices since the stock price is very beaten down..
I agree with you completely, but remember that most investors are sheepish, and the financial markets are designed to have most people fail, and lose their money. Timing of an investment or trade is at best, difficult at times. With some people being momentum driven, and others contrarian, you owe it to yourself to figure out a profitable trading style that fits your own circumstances, and learn appropriate management of your assets. Even a utility company can take someone to the woodshed if you're not careful.
My strategy is pretty solid, invest in dividend stocks (usually ones focused on dividend growth like PG or JNJ, EXC is a smaller position), write covered calls on my positions, sell puts at times, reinvest all dividends, and let the compounding effect take place over the next 30-40+ years (I'm in my mid 30's). I think my strategy is about the closest thing to a safe bet in the stock market, because even when the market is getting clobbered, my reinvestments/cost averaging picks up more and more shares at lower prices. As long as the dividends are intact, I am in good shape.
A downgrade at a 52 week low is a buy signal to me.. buying in small lots at a time.. hold & collect the divi then sell when we get an upgrade at $45.. see it happen many times in my 20 years of investing.. not saying it will happen here however it's very possible..
