Top 10 Net Payout Yield Stocks For 2013
This article is a continuation of a monthly series highlighting the top net payout yield stocks that was started back in June, 2012 (see article). The series highlights the best stocks for the upcoming month. Please review the original article for more information on the net payout yield concept.
Below are two charts highlighting the monthly returns of the top ten stocks from March (see list here). Due to limitations with YCharts, the chart was broken into the Top 5 and Next 5 lists.
The Top 5 stocks had a huge month after a weak February. Seagate Technology (STX) and DirecTV (DTV) had huge gains in March that easily offset the substantial 5% losses in February. DirecTV had a smashing 17.5% gain followed by 13.7% for Seagate. WellPoint (WLP) followed the February loss as well, with a 6.5% gain in March. Both Motorola Solutions (MSI) and Kohl's (KSS) also had small gains, though smaller than the 3.8% gain of the S&P 500.
