Before I started swing-trading dividend stocks I was "that guy" reading as many technical articles as I could, looking at the moves the insiders were making, watching what institutional investors were doing, comparing the ratings from Zacks and other analyst firms, trying to predict the next great earnings release. I spent countless hours reading investment publications such as Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg BussinessWeek, Forbes, and Money (I enjoy reading Barron's every now and then :)). I used to spend way too many hours watching investment shows on TV like SquawkBox on CNBC and MadMoney by Jim Cramer. Then one day it hit me, was any of this information actually helping me become a better investor or trader? Was I spending too much time listening to the conflicting opinions of everyone else instead of doing something unique that no one else was doing?
Finally I made a decision ... Not anymore ... I'm going to do something different
Now I make stunning 5% returns every month using a simple trading method I developed and perfected over the last 5 years. I make 2-4 trades per month on Dividend/Distribution paying stocks, I buy (2 - 14) trading days before the Ex-Dividend date and then sell 1 day before the Ex-Dividend date; effectively selling the rights to my dividend shares. I know what you are thinking ... he does what? He doesn't collect the dividend? Keep reading and I'll explain.
Here's what it's all about:
One of the biggest secrets in investing that most people don't know about is ... you can actually make much larger gains swing-trading a dividend stock around the Ex-Dividend date than you can holding through the Ex-Dividend date and collecting the dividend. The reason is, that people have a fundamental fear of missing out on the dividend payment which causes them to gradually buy more and more of the stock leading up to the Ex-Dividend date.
- The larger the dividend payment the larger the fear of missing out
- The larger the fear of missing out the more shares are purchased as the Ex-Dividend date gets closer
- More shares being purchased results in higher price gains leading up to the Ex-Dividend date
- As more price gains occur you see a higher and higher unrealized gain on your trade, this is where you sell the rights to your dividend on the day before the Ex-Dividend date
- Now you have 2-5 times the return of the dividend without actually collecting the dividend
- You are now free to move on to the next swing-trade and repeat the cycle listed above!
Don't take my word for it; take a look at what Investopedia.com says about swing-trading dividend paying stocks around the Ex-Dividend date instead of collecting the dividend:
''Generally, when a dividend-paying company distributes a large dividend, the market may account for that dividend in the days preceding the ex-date due to buyers stepping in and purchasing the stock. These buyers are willing to pay a premium to receive the dividend.'' - Source: www.investopedia.com
Now I'm going to share with you a swing-trade I made recently so you can see a real life comparison between the return of a dividend swing-trade and only collecting the dividend. The stock is OXLC or Oxford Lane Capital Corp. and after using our stock-finder tool I knew from the datasets that I wanted to buy 13 trading-days before the Ex-Dividend date. From buying 13 trading days before the Ex-Dividend date and selling 1 trading day before the Ex-Dividend date I recently made a 3.26% gain while swing-trading OXLC.
If you compare that to collecting the dividend per share of $0.135 it would look like this:
$10,000 / $9.73 = 1,027 shares
If you only capture the dividend: 1,027 x $0.135 = $138.64 gain; a 1.3% gain
If you swing-trade using our strategy:
$10,000 x 3.26% = $326.00; or a 3.26% gain
That means that using our swing-trade method would let you grow your money 2.35 times faster than collecting the dividends alone!
But can I do multiple swing-trades per month?
Absolutely, you have the ability to do multiple swing-trades per month, if you take a look at monthly dividend paying stocks the Ex-Dividend dates are spread throughout the month so you could trade one per week. I typically have 2-4 swing-trades per month and I stagger them so they are week 1 and 3 or week 2 and 4. The longest lead time for your swing-trades will be 14 trading days, there are some out there that are much shorter at 2-4 trading days before the Ex-Dividend date for the buy date. If you plan your month upfront you could do up to 10 swing-trades per month.
One example of a trading calendar would be the following:
Week 1: APLE
Week 3: OXLC
or if you prefer a week 2 and 4 setup:
Week 2: CLM
Week 4: EPR
Spacing them 2 weeks apart as shown above will let you minimize the number of trades you need to perform (reduced trading fees) while achieving astonishing returns.
Here's what your results could look like:
You can easily make one swing-trade per week. The following is a sample of what my last few swing-trade returns have been:
Week 3: OXLC +3.26%
Week 4: NKE +6.31%
Week 1: BAC +0.8%
Week 2: SBR +1.5%
That's a return of 11.87% for the past 30 days!
Here's what other investors like you say about Crane Capital:
Pat Rosenheim - 'PandATrader on StockTwits': I just finished my first trade and it worked out well; 1.379% gain for 14-15 days holding 'and collecting the dividend' ain't too shabby. Michael was very helpful throughout, and provided guidance and support above and beyond what was necessary. Thanks and kudos!
Justin - 'Motorboy on StockTwits': I just finished my first swing-trade from CraneCapital for a profit of 4.26% in under two weeks. I bought and sold ORI based on their statically proven dates. Michael was very helpful in getting me the information I needed when I needed it for this successful swing-trade.
Chris Strickland - 'cstrick1980 on StockTwits': After looking at the CraneCapital strategy for swing-trading dividend stocks around the Ex-Dividend date I decided to try it with 3 stocks. THW, ECC, and CLM. Thus far I am very happy with this method, I've done far better than simply collecting the dividend, making 2-3 times the amount of the dividend on some of my trades.
Here's why so many investors like you are using Crane Capital:
If your starting out with $10,000 to trade with using our swing-trade approach then if you do some quick math you will realize that for our Starter package $49.97/month is a steal.
$10,000 x 3% gain = $300
$300 - $49.97 = $250.03
$250.03 / $300 = 83.34% of the profit (+$250.03) goes right into your account
you get to keep the gain of $250.03 while our monthly price is LESS THAN the amount you would make on one swing-trade, remember you can do up to 10 swing-trades per month and I typically do 2-4 per month.
That's an extra $250 of income per month coming into your account!
If you take a look at the example for our Pro package at $99.97/month it only gets better:
$10,000 x 5% gain = $500
$500 - $99.97 = $400.03
$400.03 / $500 = 80.00% of the profit (+$400.03) goes right into your account
you get to keep the gain of $400.03 while our monthly price is LESS THAN the amount you would make on one swing-trade, remember you can do up to 10 swing-trades per month and I typically do 2-4 per month.
That's an extra $400 of income per month funneling into your account!
