One of the oldest trading strategies has been given a new lease on life, the dividend capturing strategy. This strategy has been around since the stock market opened in 1607. Buying a stock just to collect some dividends (a portion of the companies profit paid to investors) and then reselling for a small profit is not new at all. The internet and some new software specifically designed to make this old timer more profitable and predictable has breathed a much needed boost to many cautious first time investors.. Dividend companies are known for retaining their value and trading in a predictable channel, or trading range. Usually staying in a price range, not drifting to high or dropping to low from their normal pricing will allow most new investors to profit form this strategy and reduce any risk of loss that they may be fearing.
Dividend stocks that have been paying out an increasing dividend payments strive to make it to the top of a very short prestigious list. The "Dividend Kings". The dividend kings is a list of companies that have been increasing their dividend payouts for a minimum of 50 years... continuously increasing their payments to investors. Buying a stock in one of these companies could be considered a no brainer in times like we are having now a days. Buying these stocks and just collecting a dividend check and proceeding to the next payer could only be enhanced by software that will give an accurate probability rating to make your investment a little easier and profitable too.
