I love dividend stocks that analysts hate. For two reasons:
- By definition, they can’t be downgraded.
- In weak moments, they are candidates to be upgraded.
And since vanilla investors, for whatever reason, listen to analysts, upgrades can provide a nice “pop” in the stock price.
So give us the stocks that can only “fall out of the basement window”–yielding a fat 14.6% on average–that carry this ultimate contrarian indicator:
They’ve lost the typically rosy analyst community. Which means it’s time for us to find them.
